After missing the last two games, Laynce Nix was back in left field and hitting cleanup for the Nationals Saturday. With Nix back in the lineup, Jayson Werth was dropped back into the sixth spot in the lineup and catcher Jesus Flores gets his first major league start behind the plate since May 9, 2009.

Flores played in three games this season when he was called up in April but he did not start any of them behind the plate. It will likely be a special day for the catcher.
