Who the Washington Nationals will play in the second game of today’s doubleheader might be something of a mish-mash, but for the first game the Nationals will have their full complement of hitters back in the lineup for the first time in more than a week. 

Danny Espinosa and Michael Morse returned to the lineup for the first game with right-hander Aaron Harang pitching for the Dodgers. But Espinosa, Morse and Ryan Zimmerman are all unlikely to play in the nightcap. Zimmerman received a cortisone shot in his right AC joint before the first game.


Here are the full lineups for Game 1. Jordan Zimmermann pitches for the Nationals — his first start since last Tuesday, giving him seven days of rest between starts.
