Mets-Nats lineups (plus fifth-, sixth-round picks)

The Nationals welcome the Mets to town for a three-game set starting today, and they'll face starter Chris Young, making his season debut.

Here are the lineups for both teams:

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

For the Mets
LF Kirk Nieuwenhuis
CF Andres Torres
3B David Wright
RF Lucas Duda
2B Daniel Murphy
1B Ike Davis
C Josh Thole
SS Omar Quintanilla
P Chris Young

With their fifth-round pick, the Nats went with another amazing name, taking Clemson catcher Spencer Kieboom.

If I was a play-by-play guy, I know exactly what my call would be when Kieboom goes yard. I think you do, too.

Kieboom is thought of as one of the best defensive catchers in the country, according to Nationals assistant general manager Roy Clark.

In the sixth round, the Nats selected prep center fielder Hayden Jennings out of Evangel Christian Academy (LA).
