Espinosa in Nats lineup vs. Tigers

VIERA, Fla. - For the second straight day, we’re getting a Nationals lineup chock full of regulars.

The only change in terms of players from last night is that Danny Espinosa is starting at second base and hitting eighth, instead of Anthony Rendon. Ryan Zimmerman and Jayson Werth flip spots today, with Zimmerman fourth in the lineup and Werth third. Other than that, the lineup stays as-is.

Another thing we’re getting today is a great starting pitching matchup: Stephen Strasburg vs. Max Scherzer.

Both guys have had strong springs so far. Strasburg has a 1.00 ERA over three outings, while Scherzer has a 2.51 ERA in four appearances.
