Nationals-Mets lineups for Friday

NEW YORK - Hello from Citi Field, where the Nationals will take on the New York Mets in their home opener today at 4:10. The Nationals had a late (or early, depending on how you look at it) arrival in New York this morning, so they won’t be taking batting practice on the field before the game. But they’ll be hoping to win their second straight and spoil the Mets’ home opener.

Here are the Nationals’ and Mets’ lineups for today’s game. Also: I’ll be on Nats Xtra today around 3:35, talking with Johnny Holliday and Ray Knight about how the Nationals’ bullpen looks early this year.

Nationals:

Desmond - SS
Werth - RF
Zimmerman - 3B
LaRoche - 1B
Morse - LF
Ankiel - CF
Espinosa - 2B
Rodriguez - C
Zimmermann - P

Mets

Reyes - SS
Pagan - CF
Wright - 3B
Beltran - RF
Davis - 1B
Harris - LF
Emaus - 2B
Thole - C
