The Washington Nationals will send Ross Ohlendorf to the mound Wednesday night in search of their first sweep of the season over the Atlanta Braves.

After sweeping a doubleheader from the Braves on Tuesday, the Nationals will also look to solidify their second consecutive winning season with their 82nd victory tonight.


It may seem like a small thing — and largely inconsequential if the Nationals’ last-ditch effort for the playoffs falls short — but up until last year 82 wins was a goal to be strived for, and was never hit. 

Here are the full lineups:


Denard Span CF
Ryan Zimmerman 3B
Jayson Werth RF
Bryce Harper LF
Ian Desmond SS
Adam LaRoche 1B
Wilson Ramos C
Anthony Rendon 2B
Ross Ohlendorf P


Elliot Johnson SS
Justin Upton RF
Freddie Freeman 1B
Evan Gattis LF
Brian McCann C
Chris Johnson 3B
Uggla 2B
Jordan Schafer CF
Alex Wood P
