Kevin Frandsen will face the team that sent him to the minors this spring, setting off the chain of events that brought him to the Nationals. But he’ll do it coming off the bench. Tyler Moore gets the start in left field tonight with Cliff Lee on the mound. Adam LaRoche, as expected, is back in the lineup after he missed Wednesday’s game with a sore quad.
