Today’s Nationals-Angels lineups


With Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs starting, Manager Matt Williams tweaked the lineup again. Adam LaRoche is sitting and Tyler Moore is starting instead at first. Danny Espinosa, who is second on the team with seven extra-base hits, is hitting second in the lineup. Anthony Rendon, who leads the team with a .304 average, is hitting cleanup. He has now hit in every spot of the lineup except No. 3 and the pitcher’s spot.

It is only the 20th game of the season and Espinosa is hitting second and Rendon is hitting cleanup. Repeat that to yourself again.
