Back at home for interleague play, the first-place Nationals return to their recent standard lineup. After serving as a designated hitter in American League ballparks, Michael Morse is back in right field and hitting fifth. First baseman Adam LaRoche, who missed the last game after fouling a ball off of his foot, returns and is hitting cleanup against right-handed starter Phil Hughes (6-5, 4.76 ERA).
