Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Can the Nationals stop their string of one-run losses tonight? The Nationals more than held their own against Roy Halladay yesterday, and that still wasn't enough to win.

Photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Livan Hernandez faces Roy Halladay on Memorial Day at Nationals Park. It's Memorial Day in the nation's capital, and it's a scorcher.

In a lot of ways, the Nationals are close. Really close, in fact, to playing .500 ball. Just about every game they play seems to be tight, usually decided by one clutch at-bat or one important pitch. Sometimes, it comes down to a break, good or bad. There is, however, another way to look at…

Something unusual will occur Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park: A pitcher who wasn't on the Opening Day roster will start against the Padres, the first time that's happened this season.
