The Nationals are facing old friend Tom Gorzelanny, who makes his sixth start of the season. After putting Denard Span back at the top of the lineup Wednesday, Davey Johnson dropped him back to seventh with a left-hander on the mound. After he produced the OPS of any National League hitter in July, Jayson Werth will begin August batting cleanup.
