Nats lineup for Game 162

The bulk of the Nationals’ regulars are back in the starting lineup, while the two that started yesterday - Bryce Harper and Adam LaRoche - are taking a seat for today’s regular season finale.

The Nats have a magic number of one to clinch the top seed in the National League, giving them home-field advantage through the playoffs and setting them up to play the wild card play-in winner.

If they win today against the Phillies or the Reds lose to the Cardinals tonight, the Nationals will get the No. 1 seed.

The Nats will send Edwin Jackson to the mound today in search of his 10th win, while Cliff Lee will start the finale for Philadelphia.

For the Nats:

CF Jayson Werth
LF Mark DeRosa
3B Ryan Zimmerman
RF Michael Morse
1B Tyler Moore

For the Phillies:
