A day after being shutout, the Nationals will use their standard lineup against Cardinals right-handed starter Shelby Miller. Jose Lobaton is catching Stephen Strasburg.

Miller has faced the Nationals three times. In 18 career innings, he is 2-0 and has allowed three runs, one earned. With a small sample size, no current National has homered against Miller and Lobaton and Danny Espinosa are the only Nats with multiple hits.

A reminder: tonight’s game is not on MASN but on FOX at 7:15 p.m. EST.
