PHOENIX — Washington Nationals manager Davey Johnson has a lot riding on this evening’s game against the Diamondbacks. The manager noted on Friday that he desires to finish his managerial career 300 games over .500, and if they win today he will be assured of it.

It will also likely help clear up who will make the final start of the season for them on Sunday, with Gio Gonzalez and Tanner Roark the two most likely options. 


So those are the stakes for Dan Haren’s final start of the season and, likely, his final start in a Nationals uniform. The veteran right-hander is a free agent after the season.

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
Steve Lombardozzi 2B
Dan Haren P


Adam Eaton CF
Gerardo Parra RF
Paul Goldschmidt 1B
Martin Prado LF
Miguel Montero C
Matt Davidson 3B
Chris Owings 2B
Didi Gregorius SS
Brandon McCarthy P
