Today’s Nationals-Braves lineups

With the Braves skipping left-hander Mike Minor after last night’s rainout in favor of right-hander Brandon Beachy, the Nationals made a change to their lineup. Steve Lombardozzi will play left field, with Michael Morse dropping from cleanup to fifth.

The Braves will use speedy left fielder Jose Constanza at the No. 9 spot as a kind of double leadoff hitter, with the pitcher batting eighth.
