Nats' righty-heavy lineup to face Roy Halladay

← return to Nationals Watch

The Nationals are facing a righty again Sunday – and not just any righty but reigning Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay (15-5, 2.53 ERA), who’s a front-runner to capture the trophy again this year. Yet they’ll toss a righty-heavy lineup at the Phillies in the series finale.

On the other hand, the Phillies bring lefty Raul Ibanez and their usual group of switch-hitters against righty Chien-Ming Wang.

“Obviously the Phillies have a pretty deep lineup, one through eight or nine. Even the pitchers can hit,” the Nats’ Collin Balester said. “You wanna face the best.”

Without further ado, the lineups:

Nationals

SS Ian Desmond

CF Rick Ankiel (L)

3B Ryan Zimmerman

1B Michael Morse

RF Jayson Werth

2B Danny Espinosa (S)

LF Jonny Gomes

C Jesus Flores

P Chien-Ming Wang

Phillies
