Game 37 lineups: Nats vs. Marlins

And we're back for the nightcap of this day-night doubleheader. Game 1 ended in a downpour, with Jonathan Papelbon striking out Giancarlo Stanton to preserve a 6-4 victory for the Nationals. Game 2 will begin under blue skies, believe it or not, though the temperature has dropped considerably and it's going to be quite chilly throughout this one.

Clint-Robinson-At-Bat.jpgThe Nationals will be going for the doubleheader sweep with a depleted lineup. Bryce Harper is out after dropping the appeal of his one-game suspension. Ryan Zimmerman, Jayson Werth and Danny Espinosa also are sitting this one out, offering up opportunities for Clint Robinson, Matt den Dekker, Chris Heisey and Stephen Drew to get three or four at-bats in a game for a change.

That lineup will be going up against young right-hander Kendry Flores, called up by the Marlins to make the spot start, only his second career start in the major leagues. Tanner Roark, meanwhile, looks to keep his hot streak going; he takes the mound tonight with a 2.03 ERA and four consecutive quality starts.
