Looking for a new streak, Nationals sticking with same lineup

← return to Nationals Watch

The Nationals will truly get Interleague play into full swing tonight when they welcome the Seattle Mariners to Nationals Park and look to begin anew another winning streak.

Some new and old faces will get to interact today with Adam Kennedy making his return to Washington and Michael Morse getting to play against the team that traded him to Washington for the first time.

The Nationals haven’t changed much with regard to their lineup, sticking with the one that got them seven of their eight straight wins and just one loss in the last nine games. Livan Hernandez gets the start in his first inning since a complete game shutout over the St. Louis Cardinals and Doug Fister takes the mound for the Mariners.

Here are the full lineups:


Jayson Werth RF
Roger Bernadina CF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Laynce Nix LF
Michael Morse 1B
Danny Espinosa 2B
Wilson Ramos C
Livan Hernandez P
Ian Desmond SS


Ichiro Suzuki RF
Brendan Ryan SS
Adam Kennedy 3B
Justin Smoak 1B
Dustin Ackley 2B
Carlos Peguero LF
Franklin Gutierrez CF
