Espinosa at second, Moore in right vs. Braves

ATLANTA - Danny Espinosa, who is just 2-for-15 (.133) since returning to action Wednesday, is in the Nationals lineup this afternoon to face the pitcher who broke his wrist.

Espinosa suffered the injury when he was hit by a Paul Maholm pitch earlier this season, and now the Nats second baseman faces the Braves veteran left-hander for the first time since.

Tyler Moore is in right today with a lefty on the mound and rookie Nathan Karns will make his second career start. Jhonatan Solano is catching in Kurt Suzuki’s place for the day game after a night game.
