Nationals at Reds, Game 3: Preview and Lineups

The Reds attempt to salvage a game from their opening homestand.

MLB: Spring Training-Cincinnati Reds at Cleveland Indians Sam Greene-USA TODAY Sports

Two games vs. the Washington Nationals has yielded two losses to the Washington Nationals for the Cincinnati Reds. When we look back on this opening series months from now, we’ll likely be able to point to numerous other occasions across the baseball landscape where the Nats have downed teams in back to back fashion courtesy of stellar consecutive outings from Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, but that’s sure little consolation for the Reds at this very moment.

Sal Romano will get the chance to right the ship on Sunday, and the Reds will send a righty-heavy lineup (including Devin Mesoraco) against Washington lefty Gio Gonzalez. Let’s hope for some dingers, shall we?

First pitch is set for 4:10 PM ET, which should give each of you ample time to track down some pastel-colored eggs.
