The Nationals are going with their normal lineup against Cardinals right-hander Adam Wainwright. The Cardinals, a right-handed dominant lineup, are doing the same against left-hander Gio Gonzalez.

Nationals Manager Davey Johnson treated pre-game Sunday like he normally does all season, walking through the clubhouse and talking casually with players one-by-one.

“This isn’t my first rodeo,” he said. “If I have a meeting, they think I’m panicking.”

First pitch is at 3:07 p.m. on TBS.
