Werth back in Nats lineup

Jayson Werth is back in the Nationals lineup tonight against the Braves after being scratched from starting on Monday because of a strained groin.

Werth pinch hit in the seventh of yesterday’s loss to Atlanta, but returns to the lineup as the Nats seek their first win in three games.

Also, Ryan Zimmerman is making his first career start in the No. 2 spot in the batting order. He has one career at-bat and two plate appearances batting second, but no starts.
