The Nationals and Marlins will meet Wednesday night for the second of their season-opening three-game set.

Gio Gonzalez will make his first start against Marlins right-hander Kevin Slowey. It’s doubtful that the Marlins anticipated having Slowey pitch their second game of the season when they constructed their roster, but injuries toward the end of the spring necessitated it.


Anyway, Kurt Suzuki will get his first start of the season, catching Gonzalez. 

One friendly reminder: If you’re coming to the game, make sure to bundle up. It is expected to be in the 40s by the first pitch and will continue to drop as the game goes on. 

Here are the full lineups:


Denard Span CF
Jayson Werth RF
Bryce Harper LF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Adam LaRoche 1B
Ian Desmond SS
Danny Espinosa 2B
Kurt Suzuki C
Gio Gonzalez P


Juan Pierre LF
Donovan Solano 2B
Giancarlo Stanton RF
Placido Polanco 3B
Justin Ruggiano CF
Miguel Olivo C
Casey Kotchman 1B
Adeiny Hechavarria SS
Kevin Slowey P
