WASHINGTON – The Washington Nationals are back at home for one final game before Opening Day.

The game at Nationals Park gets under way at 2:05 p.m.

The Nats take on the Yankees. It is the only game between the two teams listed on the schedule this year.

Jordan Zimmermann is on the mound for the Nats. Andy Pettitte is pitching for the Yanks.

The Nats open the regular season at 1:05 p.m. Monday against the Marlins, with Stephen Strasburg pitching.

Expectations could not be higher for the reigning National League East champions. They are coming off a 98-win season, the best in the majors.

Sports Illustrated picked the team to win the World Series this season.

For fans hoping to head to the ballpark this afternoon, parking near the stadium will cost you anywhere from $10 to $45. Most lots will cost $20 to $25.

Navy Yard remains the closest Metro stop.
