Morse, Desmond missing from Nationals lineup

PHILADELPHIA - There’s no Michael Morse or Ian Desmond in the Nationals lineup against the Phillies tonight.

Here’s the batting order that will face Roy Halladay at 7:05 p.m.:

2B Steve Lombardozzi
CF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Jayson Werth
LF Roger Bernadina
SS Danny Espinosa
C Kurt Suzuki
P Gio Gonzalez

Morse, who was removed from last night’s game after being struck by a pitch in the first inning, reports that the swelling has gone down but that the hand feels “achy” today.

Desmond continues to be bothered by a mild right hamstring strain after being scratched from Friday’s lineup.
