Game 14 lineups: Nats at Braves (Solís to DL)

ATLANTA - And we’re back at SunTrust Park, as the Nationals and Braves prepare for the second game of their three-game series, hoping for a little less drama (or at least a lot less umpiring drama) than they got last night during what ended as a 3-1 Nats victory.

We know who will be pitching the first inning for the Nationals tonight: Joe Ross, who makes his long-awaited 2017 debut after spending the last 2 1/2 weeks at Triple-A Syracuse. We don’t know yet who will be pitching the ninth inning should the Nationals hold a slim lead. Dusty Baker certainly suggested late last night it won’t be Blake Treinen after his latest ragged appearance.

We’re still waiting for a corresponding roster move to clear a spot for Ross, so stay tuned for that ...

Update: To make room for Ross, the Nationals have placed left-hander Sammy Solís on the 10-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation. Solís tossed a scoreless eighth inning in last night’s win.
