Nats, Phillies lineups

Taylor Jordan gets a tough test tonight, matching up against Phillies starter Cliff Lee and his 3.13 ERA in game two of this three-game set between the Nationals and Phils.

Lee has fared well against the Nats over the course of his career, but the Nats got to him for four homers (all solo shots) the last time they faced the left-hander, in Philly back on July 10. The Nats won that game 5-1.

Jordan's team-imposed innings limit is quickly approaching; he said after his last outing he thought he only has three or four starts remaining before he's shut down for the season.
