Michael Morse starts at first base for Nationals against Giants

Here is the Nationals’ lineup for tonight’s series finale with the Giants. I’ll post San Francisco’s lineup when it becomes available.

Michael Morse gets the start at first base for the Nationals tonight, with Adam LaRoche sitting against left-hander Madison Bumgarner. But his placement in the lineup is a sign he’s still struggling; the Nationals have him hitting sixth, behind Wilson Ramos and Ian Desmond.

Espinosa - 2B
Ankiel - CF
Werth - RF
Ramos - C
Desmond - SS
Morse - 1B
Hairston - LF
Bixler - 3B
Gorzelanny - P
