NEW YORK — Brad Peacock’s major league debut came under unfortunate circumstances. A starter for the majority of his professional career and ensured just hours before that he wouldn’t be brought in mid-inning, Peacock was summoned with two men on and Matt Kemp at the plate for his introduction to the big leagues.

Tonight, he’ll take the mound in a much more familiar role, albeit on a new level. Peacock will start against the New York Mets tonight at Citi Field, his first major league start, with a chance to help the Nationals win the four-game series from New York.


Here are the full lineups behind him and Mets starter Mike Pelfrey:
