Lombardozzi leading off, Morse hitting fifth

Steve Lombardozzi wasn’t in the Nationals’ lineup yesterday. But after rain washed out the opener of this three-game series with the Braves, Lombardozzi is back in the leadoff spot and playing left field for Davey Johnson today.

Michael Morse will hit fifth today against Braves righty Brandon Beachy, with the left-handed-hitting Adam LaRoche staying in the cleanup spot.

Strangely, the Braves will hit Beachy eighth today, with left fielder Jose Constanza batting ninth.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

For the Nats
LF Steve Lombardozzi
CF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Michael Morse
SS Ian Desmond
2B Danny Espinosa
C Jesus Flores

For the Braves

3B Martin Prado
C Brian McCann
2B Dan Uggla
1B Freddie Freeman
RF Jason Heyward
SS Andrelton Simmons
