The Washington Nationals continue their Grapefruit League schedule tonight at Space Coast Stadium, where they will take on the Houston Astros for the second time in the last four days.
Gio Gonzalez will make his second start of the spring after throwing two strong innings in his Grapefruit League debut last week. Gonzalez held the Mets to just one run and no runs while striking out a batter in a game that the Nationals eventually won 8-5. Gonzalez is expected to throw three innings in tonight’s game.
The Astros will counter with right-hander Lucas Harrell, who will be facing a Nationals offense that scored 11 runs against the Cardinals Sunday afternoon.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. EST and the game will not air on TV.
Here are the lineups for tonight’s game:
