Bernadina in center, G. Gonzalez takes mound

As Davey Johnson said, Jayson Werth is getting the night off, shifting the Nationals' outfield alignment.

Roger Bernadina starts in center and leads off against the Cubs, making just his seventh start since Aug. 1. Bryce Harper starts in right field.

Gio Gonzalez is on the hill, seeking his 18th win one start after a complete-game shutout.

For the Nationals:
CF Roger Bernadina
RF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
