Why, Hello There: Yanks-Nats Gamer III

It’s good to be back, and better yet to come back to a box score like last night.  The Yankees go for the sweep against the Nationals, pitching Ivan Nova while Edwin Jackson is on the mound for DC.  The Bombers will tie their longest winning streak since 2009 should they capture the victory today.

Lineups follow, comment away.
