Ladies and gentlemen, your scorching hot Washington Nationals. And a great opportunity for me to work in that WACKY headline! Get it?! WOCKA WOCKA!

Cole Hamels looks to cool off a Nationals team that has now won seven in a row. He faces off against poor John Lannan, who got hollered at last year after breaking Chase Utley's hand, all of which constituted a "black eye" on the wittle guy's career, according to Don Sutton.

Of note is right fielder and son-of-a-MILF Jayson Werth, now batting third for your Fightin's.

Meanwhile, the two teams standing between the Phillies and the post-season -- the division leading Mets and the wild card leading Brewers -- are playing in Milwaukee.

Save us, Cole.
