Saturday's Nats-Cubs lineups

CHICAGO - Gio Gonzalez won't benefit from the same wind blowing in from center that Stephen Strasburg did on Thursday, as it's a much milder day here at Wrigley Field than it was opening day.

They're calling for a high of 67 degrees here today, and while the breeze might pick up later on, the flags above the center field scoreboard are barely waving back and forth.

Manager Davey Johnson has written in the same lineup for today's ballgame that he did on Thursday, while Cubs manager Dale Sveum has new leadoff and two-hole hitters today against the left-handed Gonzalez.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

Nationals
SS Ian Desmond
2B Danny Espinosa
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Jayson Werth
LF Mark DeRosa
CF Roger Bernadina
C Wilson Ramos
P Gio Gonzalez

Cubs
RF Reed Johnson
3B Joe Mather
SS Starlin Castro
LF Alfonso Soriano
1B Jeff Baker
C Geovany Soto
CF Marlon Byrd
2B Darwin Barney
P Matt Garza
