MILWAUKEE — The Nationals have a chance to do something tonight in Milwaukee that no Nationals team has ever been able to accomplish: reach 20 games over .500. 

Standing in their way is the beleaguered Brewers, losers of their last six and owners of one of the worst bullpens in the National League.


The Nationals are going with their regular lineup against right-hander Yovani Gallardo in game one of the series. Gallardo is 3-1 with a 3.90 ERA in six games (five starts) against the Nationals in his career. 

Here are the full lineups:


Steve Lombardozzi 2B
Bryce Harper RF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Adam LaRoche 1B
Michael Morse LF
Danny Espinosa SS
Roger Bernadina CF
Jesus Flores C
Edwin Jackson P


Norichika Aoki RF
Nyjer Morgan CF
Ryan Braun LF
Aramis Ramirez 3B
Corey Hart 1B
Rickie Weeks 2B
Jonathan Lucroy C
Cesar Izturis SS
Yovani Gallardo P
