As promised, Harper hitting seventh in his debut

I’m not going to lie, it was a little strange typing Bryce Harper into the lineup that you see below.

I’m still not used to the 19-year-old phenom being in the Nationals’ batting order, and I’m probably not the only one.

Harper will bat seventh and play left field in his major league debut tonight, and he’ll take his hacks off Dodgers righty Chad Billingsley, who is 2-0 with a 3.04 ERA so far this season.

The Nationals will send Stephen Strasburg to the hill, as he looks to notch his third win on the season.

Here are tonight’s lineups:

SS Ian Desmond SS
3B Steve Lombardozzi
RF Jayson Werth
1B Adam LaRoche
CF Rick Ankiel
2B Danny Espinosa
LF Bryce Harper
C Wilson Ramos
P Stephen Strasburg

SS Dee Gordon
LF Tony Gwynn Jr.
CF Matt Kemp
RF Andre Ethier
2B Jerry Hairston Jr.
1B James Loney
3B Juan Uribe
C A.J. Ellis
P Chad Billingsley
