SAN DIEGO — With a roster move upcoming in their relief corps, the Nationals lineup is still without Jerry Hairston Jr. as he continues to be on the mend from back spasms. If Hairston does not play tonight, it will be the third straight game he’s missed. Hairston has been the primary replacement for Ryan Zimmerman at third base.

Alex Cora once again gets the start in his stead as the Nationals go up against right-hander Matt Latos.


Here’s the Nationals lineup behind Jason Marquis, making his first start since being ejected in Arizona last Sunday:


Roger Bernadina CF
Ian Desmond SS
Jayson Werth RF
Laynce Nix LF
Michael Morse 1B
Danny Espinosa 2B
Wilson Ramos C
Alex Cora 3B
Jason Marquis P
