Span, Bernadina and Solano part of Nats' Game 2 lineup

After sitting out the first half of today's doubleheader with a sore ankle, Denard Span returns to the Nationals' lineup for the nightcap.

Span will be back in center field and atop the batting order as the Nats look to sweep the doubleheader and take 2-of-3 from the Twins, Span's former team.

Also in the Nats' lineup for Game 2 of the doubleheader are Roger Bernadina, who will play left field and hit second, and Jhonatan Solano, who will be behind the plate and hit eighth.

Nathan Karns get his third career big league start tonight. He's posted a 6.00 ERA over his first two outings with the Nats.
