Today’s lineups

The Nationals will be without the services of shortstop Ian Desmond for one to three days after he left the team to be with his wife for the birth of the couple’s first child. Alex Cora will play shortstop and hit eighth.

Center fielder Rick Ankiel, meantime, is back in the lineup after sitting out last night but getting an at-bat as a pinch hitter.
