Zimmerman, Desmond get day off in finale vs. Marlins

After Saturday’s marathon, rain-delayed, 10-inning victory over the Marlins, the Nationals lineup will have a different look for the Sunday series finale.

Both third baseman Ryan Zimmerman and shortstop Ian Desmond will get the day off, meaning a new left side of the infield.

Chad Tracy will play third and Danny Espinosa will man shortstop, with Steve Lombardozzi taking over for Espinosa at second base.

Here’s the lineup that will face right-hander Ricky Nolasco:

2B Steve Lombardozzi
CF Bryce Harper
RF Jayson Werth
1B Adam LaRoche
LF Michael Morse
3B Chad Tracy
SS Danny Espinosa
C Kurt Suzuki
P Edwin Jackson
