The Beat Goes On: Phillies at Nationals Game Thread, April 16, 2009

With one scheduled off day and one rainout, it's been about 72 hours since the Phillies left the field on that surreal, sad day on Monday. The Phillies look to sweep the abbreviated series with the Washington Nationals before heading back home to a very somber Citizens Bank Park and a weekend of tributes to the late Harry Kalas.

Righty Joe Blanton goes for the Phillies in his second start of the season, versus the Nationals' Shairon Martis.

Perhaps most notably, C Lou Marson makes just his second career start for the Phillies tonight. Hopefully it goes as well as his first (a regular season finale home run).

Discuss the game below.
