The Nationals (34-45) return to the District to start a 10 game homestand tonight after going 1-5 on their most recent roadtrip.

Want to get your favorite Nats to the 2010 All-Star Game in Anaheim? MLB veteran Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez remains atop the NL leaders in votes but still needs more. Other players are in the running but they won’t get anywhere without fans notching their names in the tally column.
Ballots close at 11:59 p.m. tonight. That means: if you want to see those Washington faces in sunny California representing District baseball, you’ve got less than 24 hours to make something happen.
