Gorzelanny To Start for Nationals

After spending 3 weeks on the disabled list, MLB.com says that Nationals pitchers Tim Gorzelanny will start tomorrow against the Baltimore Orioles. The Nationals will go for their 3rd straight sweep and their 9th straight win. The team is currently the hottest team in baseball.

Manager Jim Riggleman will ease Gorzelanny back into the rotation. He is only expected to pitch 5-6 innings or up to 90 pitches. Riggleman is taking a passive approach at bringing back one of his aces. "Depending on how things are in the bullpen and how rested we are," said manager Jim Riggleman, "if we are fortunate to get five or six innings, 90 pitches, that would be a pretty good workload for [Gorzelanny]."


The streaking Nationals look to keep the magic alive tomorrow afternoon at 1:35. They will be going for their 3rd straight sweep and 9th straight victory.
