Dan Uggla gets the day off. In the 20 games since Uggla homered off the sun of the home run apparatus in Miami, he is 7-for-65 (.108) with just 5 RBI and one home run. Perhaps he needs to appease the sun gods, or maybe sacrifice a live chicken.

Detwiler has a 2.81 ERA in road games this year. Prado is 6-for-12 career against Detwiler, so it's odd that he's not starting today.

Ryan Zimmerman is currently riding a five-game hitting streak in which he's gathered nine hits and raised his batting average from .218 to .235.
