John Lannan, with nine wins on the season, has a chance tonight to achieve his first-ever 10-win season. It would be just the sixth 10-win season in Nationals’ history. To get it, he’ll have a pretty standard Nationals lineup behind him with just one rookie call-up in it: Chris Marrero at first base.

If there was ever a time for Lannan to not waste an opportunity, it would be tonight against an Astros lineup with fewer recognizable names in it than almost any the Nationals have faced this season.


Wandy Rodriguez pitches for Houston.

Here are the full lineups:


Ian Desmond SS
Jayson Werth CF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Michael Morse LF
Jonny Gomes RF
Danny Espinosa 2B
Chris Marrero 1B
Jesus Flores C
John Lannan P 


Jordan Schafer CF
Jason Bourgeois RF
J.D. Martinez LF
Carlos Lee 1B
Chris Johnson 3B
Angel Sanchez SS
Jose Altuve 2B
Carlos Corporan C 
Wandy Rodriguez P
