Game 25 lineups: Nats vs. Marlins

The Nationals look to even their series with the Marlins today with a 12:35 p.m. first pitch at Nats Park. Aníbal Sánchez gets the call, looking to build off his last start where he said he felt strong at the end of the outing, which is a good sign.

Manager Davey Martinez and pitching coach Paul Menhart have worked with Sánchez to get him to throw less between starts so he is fresher on game day.

Sánchez (0-3, 8.50) faces Marlins right-hander Humberto Mejía (0-1, 5.68 ERA). Sánchez started his major league career in 2006 with the Marlins, going 44-45 with a 3.75 ERA in 132 starts over seven seasons.

Catcher Yan Gomes is riding a seven-game hitting streak after his solo homer in the third inning last night. He finished 2-for-3. In the last week, Gomes is hitting .393 (11-for-28) with a double, a triple, two homers, seven RBIs, one walk and six runs scored.
