Nationals-Marlins Preview

(AP) -- If the Washington Nationals' last game was any indication, Matt Williams can't afford to rest his regulars many more times if he wants to finish with the NL's top record.

The Washington manager will look for Gio Gonzalez to get his club back on track in Thursday night's series opener against the host Miami Marlins.

A day after the Nationals clinched the NL East title, Williams rested a number of everyday players for the series finale at Atlanta, giving starting nods to Michael A. Taylor, Tyler Moore, Steven Souza Jr., Jeff Kobernus and Sandy Leon - players who had participated in a combined 82 games this season prior to Wednesday.
