Today’s Nationals lineup

Tom Gorzelanny makes his start today, and it’s also the first time the Nationals will face a left-handed starter. With Chris Capuano on the mound, Adam LaRoche will sit for the first time and Jerry Hairston will take left field as Michael Morse switches to first. It seemed as though Ankiel would sit against lefties, with Hairston taking center, but not today.
