Nationals vs. Cardinals lineups: NLDS Game 2

JONATHAN ERNST/Reuters

Both the Nationals and Cardinals will go with the same lineup in Game 2 as they used in the series opener.  

Washington turns to right-hander Jordan Zimmermann whose pitches may be even tougher for Cardinals batters to locate given the shadows that cover Busch Stadium in the late afternoon. The Cardinals will start lefty Jaime Garcia, who fared much better at home (2.82 ERA) than on the road (5.02 ERA) during the regular season.

First pitch is at 4:37 p.m. on TBS.
