Harper talks his way into Nats lineup (with Brewers lineup)

After yesterday’s game, Davey Johnson said he planned to give Bryce Harper, mired in an 0-for-18 slump, the weekend off.

So much for that.

Harper has talked his way back into the Nationals’ lineup today against the Padres.

Kurt Suzuki will get the start behind the plate after Wilson Ramos had caught the last two days.

The Nats will face old buddy Jason Marquis today. Jordan Zimmermann will go for the Nats.
