Nationals-Cardinals lineups: Going for the series win

← return to Nationals Watch

The Washington Nationals will get a chance this afternoon to seal another series victory. Sending Jordan Zimmermann to the mound against right-hander Kyle Lohse, they can take the first three of this four-game set against the St. Louis Cardinals.

It won’t be simple. Lohse is 14-2 this season with a 2.64 ERA. He’s been one of the best starters in the National League, but there are plenty of Nationals’ hitters who’ve done well of him in the past. Michael Morse, in particular, is 5-for-9 against him with three doubles.

Here are the full lineups:


Jayson Werth RF
Bryce Harper CF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Adam LaRoche 1B
Michael Morse LF
Ian Desmond SS
Danny Espinosa 2B
Kurt Suzuki C
Jordan Zimmermann P


Jon Jay CF
Matt Carpenter 1B
Matt Holliday LF
Allen Craig RF
Yadier Molina C
David Freese 3B
Skip Schumaker 2B
Daniel Descalso SS
Kyle Lohse P
