Nationals Manager Davey Johnson sat Adam LaRoche, mired in a slump to start the season and particularly in recent games, in favor of Tyler Moore with hopes of jump-starting a sleepy offense that has scored two runs over the past 28 innings. More Johnson-fueled days off could be in store for other starters in the future. Stephen Strasburg (1-3, 2.96 ERA) takes the mound and is opposed by left-hander Jaime Garcia (1-1, 3.22 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game here.
