Game Thread: Orioles (48-40) @ Nationals (48-39)

It’s time once again for the “MASN Cup” (or “The Battle of the Beltways,” if you prefer) as the Orioles head down I-95 to take on the Nats for two games at Nationals Park before the Nats return the favor for two at OPACY.

Both teams are once again at or near the top of their respective divisions, so we should be in for some good, quality baseball here in the Mid-Atlantic this week.
