Harper back in Nats lineup (with D’backs lineup)

After getting a day off yesterday, Bryce Harper is back in the Nationals lineup for tonight’s series opener against Diamondbacks.

Stephen Strasburg will face off against D’backs righty Trevor Cahill, who is 9-9 with a 3.76 ERA this season.

Michael Morse will hit fifth, but instead of looking to extend his hitting streak to 19 games, he’ll try and boost that hitting streak to eight.

Major League Baseball has announced that Morse’s third inning single against the Phillies on August 2 has been changed to an E-6.

That interrupts Morse’s 18-game hitting streak and drops it to seven.

Tough break for the Nats’ left fielder, but he’s swinging it so well lately, he might not mind all that much.

2B Steve Lombardozzi

3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
LF Michael Morse
RF Jayson Werth

For the Diamondbacks:
