At the Ballpark: Not much going on in terms of giveaways or promotions during this series, although kids will get to run the bases following Sunday's game. After the Phillies leave town and the Mets come in, the Nationals are giving away a Jayson Werth garden gnome to the first 25,000 fans. Now that's something that could come in handy. What squirrel wouldn't be completely terrified by a Jayson Werth garden gnome?
