Lineups from a damp Fenway Park

BOSTON - Literally as soon as I stepped foot in the press box at Fenway Park, the grounds crew pulled the tarp over the infield.

Fenway_Park.jpgI’m pretty excited to be here for this series (my first time at Fenway in a professional capacity), and I’m not going to let Mother Nature rain on my parade.

Actually, they’re only calling for a brief thunderstorm here shortly and then possibly another sprinkling later on. Nothing too big, it seems.

With the Red Sox throwing two lefties this series and having the benefit of a DH, Davey Johnson will get a chance to mess around with his lineups a bit over the next three days.

Tonight, he’ll have Tyler Moore in left, Xavier Nady in right and Danny Espinosa back in the leadoff spot. Steve Lombardozzi and his .105 average against lefties will get the night off.

Enjoy the Green Monster, Mr. Moore.

Here are the lineups for tonight:

For the Nationals:
2B Danny Espinosa
CF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
DH Michael Morse
1B Adam LaRoche
SS Ian Desmond
RF Xavier Nady
LF Tyler Moore

For the Red Sox:

2B Dustin Pedroia
1B Adrian Gonzalez
DH David Ortiz
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia
