Nationals-Dodgers doubleheader: Game 2 delayed, Nationals lineup

The Nationals lost Game 1 of today’s doubleheader, 7-4, when Drew Storen allowed three runs in the ninth inning. Jayson Werth hit his 19th home run this season, a two-run blast to left that tied the game at 4 in the third inning. The Nationals scored four runs on five hits in the third, but they did not a produce either before or after that inning.

1. Ian Desmond, SS

2. Jayson Werth, CF

3. Ryan Zimmerman 3B

4. Michael Morse, LF

5. Jonny Gomes, RF

6. Danny Espinosa, 2B

7. Chris Marrero, 1B

8. Jesus Flores, C

9. Ross Detwiler, SP
