Nationals Vs. Mets: Jason Marquis Looks To Give Nats A Series Win Against The Mets

After a disappointing 8-4 loss last night to the Mets, in which Jerry Hairston Jr. made a critical error in left field the bottom of the 6th, the Nats hope to rebound and still cash in on their chance to get their first series victory of the season.
