On Tuesday, the Washington Nationals will face the Los Angeles Angels in a two-game interleague series at Nationals Park in Washington, DC. First pitch is set at 7:05PM ET.

The Washington Nationals will be without Bryce Harper when the face the hot-streaking Los Angeles Angels. He was put on a 10-day disabled list after he injured his knee while trying out a ground ball on a wet field over the weekend against San Francisco.

Washington's depth of players in the outfield will play another role as Bryce Harper sits out. The Nationals have enough strong pitchers and outfield depth and is line to win a division title without Harper's services.

The Los Angeles Angels has won its sixth game in a row and are very much alive in the race for a wild-card spot in the American League. Mike Trout is the leader on this team. His highly-rated skills have energized his teammates and has given them confidence.
