With a left-hander, Erik Bedard, on the mound tonight for Pittsburgh, Davey Johnson moved Bryce Harper to second in the order and inserted Xavier Nady and Tyler Moore into the lineup, on the corners in the outfield. By the way: the Nationals will let Gio Gonzalez hit tonight after his sore right hand relegated him to bunting only in his previous start.
