Strasburg takes hill for Nationals-Marlins finale (Ramos goes deep)

The Nationals send Stephen Strasburg to the hill this afternoon in Miami to try and take the series from the Marlins.

With Bryce Harper is back in D.C. getting his sore hip looked at, the lineup has a slightly different feel. The Nationals still hope Harper will rejoin them Monday when they open a four-game series against the Mets at Citi Field.

For the Nationals:

CF Denard Span
3B Ryan Zimmerman
RF Jayson Werth
1B Adam LaRoche
SS Ian Desmond
C Wilson Ramos
LF Tyler Moore
2B Anthony Rendon
RHP Stephen Strasburg

For the Marlins:

RF Chris Coghlan
2B Donovan Solano
LF Christian Yelich
CF Justin Ruggiano
1B Logan Morrison
3B Placido Polanco
SS Adeiny Hechavarria
C Rob Brantly
RHP Jacob Turner

Update: The Nats have a 1-0 lead in the second inning, courtesy of a mammoth Wilson Ramos home run to left-center field. If Ramos is starting to wear down from catching a lot of games, it’s not showing in his power stroke. It’s the 11th homer of the year for Ramos.
