Game 85 lineups: Nats vs. Brewers

It’s a big night in baseball, and not necessarily for what’s taking place on the field. It’s All-Star selection night, which means that shortly after 7 p.m. EDT, several members of the Nationals are going to find out they’re heading to San Diego next week for the Midsummer Classic.

At last check, Bryce Harper was still in position to be voted as a starting outfielder by fans, with Daniel Murphy and Wilson Ramos each trying to make late charges. Either way, both Murphy and Ramos are seen as near-locks to make the team, as is Stephen Strasburg.

In the meantime, the Nats do have a game to play tonight against the Brewers. Washington is trying to bounce back from yesterday’s disappointing 1-0 loss. Gio Gonzalez, who was much better his last time on the mound, will look to continue that upward trend with another strong outing against Milwaukee (which hopefully will have a correct lineup card tonight).

Right-hander Zach Davies starts for the Brewers against a Nats lineup that scored 12 runs on Sunday against the Reds, but was shut out yesterday.
