Game 72 lineups: Nats at Orioles

BALTIMORE – After a beautiful, unseasonably mild Tuesday evening here, it’s a very seasonable, hot and muggy and wet Wednesday afternoon here as the Nationals and Orioles prepare to wrap up their two-game interleague series. It began raining a short while ago, and the Camden Yards grounds crew rolled out the tarp, canceling batting practice. More is expected tonight, so it’s anybody’s guess whether this game will start on time or be completed at all. Stay tuned.

If they’re able to play, it’ll be Patrick Corbin on the mound trying to continue the suddenly dominant ways of the Nats rotation, which hasn’t allowed an earned run in any of its last three starts. Corbin has made it through only one of 14 starts so far this season without allowing a run, and he gave up nine (only two earned) in his last outing. So he’s not exactly primed to pick up where Erick Fedde left off Tuesday night, but we’ll see.

The Nationals get their first look at Tyler Wells as a starter. The Baltimore right-hander did pitch two innings in relief last May in D.C., but he’s blossomed into an effective member of the rotation this season. He’s allowed three or fewer runs in all but one of his 13 starts, though he’s yet to top six innings or 88 pitches.
