Nationals - Phillies lineups: Denard Span returns as they dodge raindrops

← return to Nationals Watch

PHILADELPHIA — The tarp is on the field here at Citizens Bank Park and it’s all but certain the start to Tuesday night’s game against the Phillies will be delayed.

If and when they do play — and it seems likely they will eventually — Denard Span will be back in the Nationals’ lineup after missing a game with a sore right foot. Span has fouled a ball off the top of his foot three times now this season and while he thinks his swing might be at the root of the problem, as long as he doesn’t continue doing it, the center fielder said he thinks he’ll be fine.

Here are the full lineups:


Denard Span CF
Anthony Rendon 2B
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Jayson Werth RF
Adam LaRoche 1B
Ian Desmond SS
Kurt Suzuki C
Steve Lombardozzi LF
Ross Detwiler P


Ben Revere CF
Michael Young 3B
Jimmy Rollins SS
Ryan Howard 1B
Domonic Brown LF
Delmon Young RF
Kevin Frandsen 2B
Carlos Ruiz C
Cliff Lee P
