Game 7 lineups: Nats vs. Cardinals (Turner to DL)

The Nationals are back in town, home for the entire week to face the Cardinals and Phillies, hoping for some better results than their weekend in Philadelphia. The bullpen probably will have a major say in how this all turns out, but first things first ...

Tanner Roark is on the mound for the Nats in tonight’s opener against St. Louis. He pitched well in his season opener, allowing two runs in six innings against the Marlins. If he can go six or seven tonight, the Nationals bullpen should be in good shape after all the work it took on last week.

The Nats lineup, meanwhile, faces a test in Adam Wainwright, who is 8-3 with 2.99 ERA in 14 career games against the franchise.

Update: The Nationals have placed Trea Turner on the 10-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain and recalled Michael A. Taylor. Check back later for the full story.
