Provided the weather cooperates, the Washington Nationals and Arizona Diamondbacks will finish up their three-game series with a marquee pitching matchup this afternoon at Nationals Park as the Nationals send Stephen Strasburg to the mound against lefty Patrick Corbin.

Corbin, who is 9-0 with a 2.19 ERA this season, was selected in the same draft as Strasburg but while Strasburg went No. 1 overall to the Nationals, the Los Angeles Angels took him at No. 80 overall, in the second round. Corbin was part of the package the Angels traded to the Diamondbacks in exchange for Dan Haren midway through the 2010 season.


At any rate, if the rain stays away, it should be a decent show.

Here are the full lineups:


Denard Span CF
Anthony Rendon 2B
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Jayson Werth RF
Adam LaRoche 1B
Ian Desmond SS
Tyler Moore LF
Jhonatan Solano C
Stephen Strasburg P


Gerardo Parra CF
Aaron Hill 2B
Paul Goldschmidt 1B
Miguel Montero C
Cody Ross RF
Jason Kubel LF
Didi Gregorius SS
Cliff Pennington 3B
Patrick Corbin P
