The Nationals will start their three-game game series in Pittsburgh with their first look at A.J. Burnett, the veteran right-hander acquired this winter from the Yankees. Bryce Harper will hit second for the first game, which, with Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche back, is what he expected. “I’m just going to go up there, get a pitch that I can drive and make something happen,” he said. Manager Davey Johnson called Harper “the natural choice” to hit second.

Talk about the game right here.
