The World Series champ Nats will finally play their first game since last October.
They host the New York Yankees tomorrow night in 2020 MLB Opening Day.
The Nationals, who reached the postseason just once during the franchise’s 36 seasons in Montreal, made the playoffs for the fifth time in eight seasons last year and needed seven games to defeat the Houston Astros in the World Series.
First pitch at Nationals Park is set for 7:08 p.m. ET.
The teams last met in 2018, when they split four games. New York is the -135 favorite on the money line in the latest Yankees vs. Nationals odds from William Hill, while the over-under for total runs scored is 7.5.
