Marlins Vs. Nationals: Josh Johnson Looks For Sweep

The Miami Marlins are continuing to be red hot in the month of May as they head into Wednesday night's matchup with the Washington Nationals looking to sweep the series at home. Marlins pitcher Josh Johnson will go out to the mound, having never lost to the Nationals in his career with a 7-0 record.

For the Nationals, pitcher Chien-Ming Wang will make his 2012 debut with the team to take on the Marlins and look to shut down their bats and avoid the sweep. Wang has made one other appearance for the Nationals this year, in relief duty against the Atlanta Braves.

Johnson will look to build on what Anibal Sanchez was able to do on Tuesday to the Nationals bats, cool them off.
