The Nationals are employing nearly the same lineup as the past few days, except for Wilson Ramos starting at catcher and Tyler Moore at first. Adam LaRoche, who has played 12 straight games and 83 of the Nationals 87 games, is getting a day off against left-hander Robbie Erlin (1-1, 4.34 ERA). LaRoche is hitting .197 with a .617 OPS against left-handed pitchers in 84 plate appearances this season.
