With a win in the second game of Wednesday’s doubleheader, the Nationals can claim their first postseason berth since 1933. John Lannan (3-0, 2.41 ERA), in his second start as Stephen Strasburg’s replacement in the starting rotation, takes the mound the Nationals and will be opposed by right-hander Josh Beckett (6-13, 4.94 ERA). Players said they’re not thinking about clinching a playoff berth, but focusing instead on claiming the National League East division crown. As always, talk about the game here.
