The Nationals will use the same lineup as Monday, the new one in which Bryce Harper hits third and Jayson Werth hits second. Stephen Strasburg will be on the mound and oppose right-hander Wily Peralta (5-9, 5.58 ERA). The weather doesn’t look great but not altogether terrible. Forecasts call for a chance of rain throughout the night. We’ll keep you updated if the game is delayed or postponed.
