Span back in Nats lineup vs. Astros

As the Nationals play their first home game following a 10-game road trip, Denard Span returns to the lineup after sitting out Sunday’s game with a tight back.

Span will also be looking to get on track, as the Nats center fielder has gone 0-for-18 over his last five games.

Tanner Roark will be on the mound opposite Astros left-hander Dallas Keuchel, who is 6-1 with a 1.33 ERA over his last seven starts. Roark is seeking his sixth straight quality start and has a 1.93 ERA over his last seven starts.
