Game 119 lineups: Nats at Cardinals

ST. LOUIS - It’s a new day, in a new town and there’s a new ballgame for the Nationals to play tonight. Whether last night’s events have any carryover effect in their series opener at Busch Stadium remains to be seen. Your guess is as good as anyone’s when it comes to this.

Milone-Delivers-Gray-Sidebar.jpgThe Nats will need Tommy Milone to give them a chance, though. The lefty very much did that in his first two starts in place of Stephen Strasburg, against the Marlins and Mets. He very much did not do it in his last start against the Braves. He faces a real challenge tonight against a Cardinals lineup that has helped that team win five in a row.

The Nationals also will be facing a pitcher they’ve never seen before in right-hander Miles Mikolas. Adam Eaton is literally the only one on the current roster to have faced Mikolas; he singled in his lone at-bat against him.
