Ian Desmond will return to leadoff after all

Ian Desmond will return to the leadoff spot tonight rather than swapping places with Danny Espinosa as Manager Jim Riggleman had originally planned. Espinosa will play tonight against the Marlins, but Riggleman simply changed his mind after saying yesterday he planned to hit Desmond, who began the season 0 for 13, seventh in the lineup and move Espinosa to leadoff.

Otherwise, the Nationals will use their usual lineup:

Nationals

1. Ian Desmond, SS

2. Jayson Werth, RF

3. Ryan Zimmerman, 3B

4. Adam LaRoche, 1B

5. Michael Morse, LF

6. Rick Ankiel, CF

7. Danny Espinosa, 2B

8. Ivan Rodriguez, C

9. Livan Hernandez, SP
