Johnson sticking with same lineup

Aside from pitcher Gio Gonzalez, Nationals manager Davey Johnson will trot out the same lineup for tonight’s opener of a three-game series against the Padres as he used yesterday in the finale against the Brewers. I guess when you score eight runs, you don’t want to mess up a good thing.

Gonzalez will be opposed by right-hander Andrew Cashner.

Here are tonight’s lineups:

For the Padres

SS Everth Cabrera
CF Chris Denorfia
LF Carlos Quentin
3B Chase Headley
RF Kyle Blanks
2B Logan Forsythe
1B Juan Guzman
C Yasmani Grandal
RHP Andrew Cashner

For the Nationals

CF Denard Span
SS Ian Desmond
LF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Jayson Werth
2B Anthony Rendon
C Wilson Ramos
LHP Gio Gonzalez
