The Nationals make their first trip to Philadelphia this season and it is, oddly, late in the year. Dan Haren (4-8, 5.70 ERA) starts, hoping again to limit home runs and perform up to the level the Nationals and he expected. Old friend John Lannan (0-1, 6.14 ERA), back from the disabled list, starts against his old team. The lineups are here. As always, discuss the game here.
