The Washington Times - August 28, 2013, 05:10PM

The Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins will meet on a gloomy Wednesday evening at Nationals Park for the second of this three-game set with the Nationals hoping they can continue to take advantage of the first series in a 19-game stretch against lesser opponents. 

The tarp is off the field here at Nationals Park and it appears the rain may not cause too much of an issue for the 7:05 p.m. game. 


Steve Lombardozzi gets the start at second base for the Nationals against right-hander Henderson Alvarez and Anthony Rendon gets a night off.

Here are the full lineups:


Denard Span CF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Bryce Harper LF
Jayson Werth RF
Ian Desmond SS
Adam LaRoche 1B

Stephen Strasburg P


Justin Ruggiano CF
