Kurt Suzuki is starting his 10th straight game, hitting .294 (10 for 34) with one home run and seven RBI in the previous nine games. The Nationals are going with their usual lineup against Phillies right-hander Kyle Kendrick (10-12, 4.08 ERA). A Nationals win, or Atlanta Braves loss, clinches the National League East for them.
