Solano behind plate, Strasburg on mound for Nats (with Phillies lineup)

The Nationals have Stephen Strasburg on the mound looking to keep a run of strong starts going in today’s series finale against the Phillies.

Strasburg, who has allowed just two earned runs in 20 innings over his last three starts, will be throwing to backup catcher Jhonatan Solano for the day game after a night game.

Manager Davey Johnson thought about giving Jeff Kobernus a start today, but stuck with Tyler Moore in left and Steve Lombardozzi at second with both playing well of late.

The Phillies will bring out a few of their reserves this afternoon against Strasburg in the series finale.

Kevin Frandsen will get the start at first in place of Ryan Howard and Humberto Quintero will start behind the plate. Freddy Galvis has already been starting at second as of late with Chase Utley on the DL.
