The Nationals have lost the first two in their four-game series against the Phillies, and they’ll try to earn their first win against A.J. Burnett behind Jordan Zimmermann. Burnett has gone 2-1 against the Nats this season, but they’ve scored 11 earned runs off him in 19 2/3 innings.

Matt Williams is using the same lineup as last night, with Asdrubal Cabrera back at No. 7 against another right-handed starter.
