After watching his offense ignite Thursday night and score eight runs off the Cincinnati Reds, Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson is sticking with the same lineup for Friday’s game. 

This will be the second straight game where Anthony Rendon, who Johnson and general manager Mike Rizzo have said multiple times needs to be playing everyday, sits on the bench in favor of Steve Lombardozzi at third base.
