Game 103 lineups: Nats at Giants

SAN FRANCISCO - It’s a new day in the Bay Area, which means the Nationals will start anew after last night’s near-disaster in the bottom of the ninth. We don’t know yet who will be closing for them if the situation arises, but we do know they’ve got a very different lineup tonight against Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

Ben Revere is back atop the lineup and in center field. Danny Espinosa gets his first day off in a long time, but his replacement at shortstop isn’t who you might have guessed it would be. No, it’s not Trea Turner but Wilmer Difo getting the nod. Ryan Zimmerman also gets a night off, with Clint Robinson at first base.

Max Scherzer is on the mound, and he’ll be looking to continue his recent dominant stretch...
