Rendon getting a day off (with Marlins lineup)

Davey Johnson will give Anthony Rendon the day off today in Game 2 of this three-game set against the Marlins.

Steve Lombardozzi will play second base for the Nationals today, giving him his first start since June 23, while Rendon gets a rest.

This will be the first time Rendon isn’t in the starting lineup since June 14.

Dan Haren gets the start for the Nats looking to build off his first outing off the DL, when he allowed two runs over five innings in a loss to the Phillies.

The Marlins send talented young righty Jose Fernandez and his 2.83 ERA to the hill. Fernandez is 3-0 with a 1.47 ERA in eight home starts this year.
