Nationals-White Sox lineups

Dan Haren will make his second start of the season tonight, hoping to redeem himself from his rough first impression in Cincinnati. After he returned from the disabled list after the all-star break last season with the Angels, Haren went 1-0 in two starts against Chicago with three earned runs and two home runs allowed in 12 innings. Wilson Ramos will be behind the plate. Right-hander Dylan Axelrod will start for the White Sox.

The ceremonial first pitch will be worth a look as well, as Wizards guard John Wall will seek redemption after an embarrassing attempt two seasons ago. (Click on the link to read about it on Wizards Insider.)
