Solano behind the plate in series finale vs. Diamondbacks

Davey Johnson is running out pretty much the same lineup today that he used in yesterday’s 3-2 Nationals win over the Diamondbacks.

Tyler Moore will get the start again in left field, this time against Arizona left-hander Patrick Corbin. The only change to yesterday’s lineup is that Jhonatan Solano will be behind the plate, catching right-hander Stephen Strasburg.

This should be a heck of a pitching matchup today, pitting two 2009 draft picks against one another.

Strasburg (No. 1 overall in the ‘09 First-Year Player Draft) takes his 4-6 record and 2.40 ERA into today’s game. Corbin (No. 80 overall) has gotten off to a tremendous start to the 2013 season, going 9-0 with a 2.28 ERA.
