After two games on the road, the Nationals return to Space Coast Stadium to take on the New York Mets for the second time this spring.
Gio Gonzalez will make his 2014 Grapefruit League debut for the Nationals as they try to snap a two-game losing streak. Actually, neither Gonzalez nor the Nationals care about a spring training losing streak. But it’s always nice to beat the Mets! New York will counter with right-hander Jenrry Mejia.
The Nationals last played the Mets in their Grapefruit League opener in Port St. Lucie, Florida Feb. 28, a game which the Nationals won by a score of 5-4. It’ll be the second of six meetings between the two clubs this spring and they will meet again March 31 in New York for Opening Day.
“He’s going to go through a full workout today to make sure,” Williams told MLB.com’s Joe Morgan yesterday, “but he’s scheduled to go tomorrow.”
First pitch for today’s game is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. and the game will not air on TV.
