Game 101 lineups: Nats at Indians

CLEVELAND - And we’re back. Only 11 hours have passed since the Nationals walked off the field in disgust following a 7-6 loss to the Indians, but everyone is back at Progressive Field, preparing for today’s early matinee (12:10 p.m.) to wrap up this unusual two-game interleague series. This could be a good thing (no time to stew over the loss) or it could be a bad thing (the hangover effect). We’ll just have to wait and see.

One good thing from the Nats’ perspective: Stephen Strasburg is on the mound, and he’ll be motivated to bounce back after suffering his first loss of the season. The Indians are sending their own elite pitcher to the mound, though, in Carlos Carrasco (owner of a 2.31 ERA overall, 1.37 over his last seven starts).

Dusty Baker is going with the exact same lineup from last night, so it’s Trea Turner again in center field and leading off, with Bryce Harper batting second, Jayson Werth serving as designated hitter and Ben Revere batting ninth...
