Today’s Nationals-Astros lineups

As Stephen Strasburg makes the second major league start in his comeback from Tommy John surgery, the Nationals will use a pretty standard lineup. Ian Desmond and Danny Espinosa form the double play combination, and Jayson Werth moves back to right field, with Rick Ankiel in center. Wilson Ramos will catch Strasburg for the second straight outing.
