Nats lineup has Lombardozzi in left (plus Braves lineup)

For the first time since starting both halves of a July 21 doubleheader against the Braves in left, Steve Lombardozzi is getting a start in the outfield.

Lombardozzi is appearing in left for just the third time since that date, but the two previous occasions had him moved there as a defensive replacement.

Edwin Jackson takes the mound for the Nationals, seeking his 10th win as the team aims to bounce back from last night's walk-off loss. Tommy Hanson starts for the Braves sporting a 12-8 record and a 4.27 career ERA against Washington.
