Today’s Nationals-Braves lineups

Laynce Nix starts for the eighth straight game, and tonight he’s hitting cleanup. Against Derek Lowe, the Nationals stacked their lineup with left-handed bats – five of eight position players, counting switch-hitting Danny Espinosa, with bat lefty against Lowe.

Against Lowe this season, there’s not a huge difference between lefties and righties. Left-hander batters against him have hit .250/.313/.330, while right-handers are .247/.299/.309.
