While Matt Williams plans to make regular changes to the Nationals lineup, he stuck with the same order that produced last night’s 7-3 victory over the Rockies for tonight’s game against left-hander Christian Friedrich. So for at least one night, there are no daily changes.

For what it’s worth, several Nationals infielders came out for early groundballs this afternoon: Ryan Zimmerman and Kevin Frandsen at third base, Danny Espinosa at shortstop and  Anthony Rendon at second base.
