The first lineup in Rick Schu’s tenure as Nationals hitting coach is fairly similar to that of Sunday’s. Denard Span returns to the lineup and hitting seventh, and Bryce Harper is back in left and leading off. Wilson Ramos is in for Kurt Suzuki. (Well, actually, the team says that Schu won’t join the Nationals until Tuesday.)


1. Bryce Harper, CF

2. Anthony Rendon, 2B

3. Ryan Zimmerman, 3B

4. Adam LaRoche, 1B

5. Jayson Werth, RF

6. Ian Desmond, SS

7. Denard Span, CF

8. Wilson Ramos, C

9. Dan Haren, SP



To come.
