MLB:

Washington Nationals at San Francisco Giants: The Giants host the Nationals in the second game of their three-game set. The Nationals look to win the series after winning the first game by a score of 3-0. It will be interesting to see how both teams respond after the fight between Bryce Harper and Hunter Strickland. Strickland was upset about giving up two home runs to Harper a few years ago in the playoffs, so he threw the first pitch at Harper. It’s hard to blame Harper for defending himself after such a cowardice act. Hopefully the league comes down hard on Strickland for his selfish act. The Nationals are starting Gio Gonzalez, who has a 3-1 record and a 2.90 ERA. The Giants are countering with Jeff Samardzija, who has a 1-6 record and a 4.50 ERA. The Nationals are favorites to win this game.
