Game Thread: Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals - 2008 Game 137 of 162. "The Road Trip...Day Three."

(ed. note - I'll be in DC's Nationals Park this weekend, so I'm gonna schedule Game Threads for each game of the weekend series here and update throughout the weekend in the Comments sections with info, and i'll also include each night's section and seat number when I get tickets so anyone who wants to can stop by yell at me about my unabashed enthusiasm for an 85-loss team, or my non-stop run-on sentences, and I can explain how my theory of sentence structure stretches back from Ginsberg to Whitman to Blake...Hope the threat of that lecture doesn't keep anyone away. I'll stick to baseball talk, I promise.")

GAME 3 of 3...Sunday Afternoon, 1:35 pm EST Atlanta Braves vs Washington Nationals...

On The Hill...
