Game 23 lineups: Nats vs. Marlins

A quick turnaround from a night game to a day game is never easy, but when it comes on the heels of a walk-off win, it does at least brighten everyone’s mood a little bit. So the Nationals have to be feeling pretty good about themselves after Friday night’s 2-1, 10-inning victory over the Marlins, capped by Kyle Schwarber’s 454-foot blast to right-center.

In order to keep the good vibes going, they’ll need Patrick Corbin to give themselves a chance to win today. Once this season, the left-hander has done that. Three times, he hasn’t. This isn’t necessarily a make-or-break start for Corbin, but the time has certainly come for him to step up and pitch the way he has before.

That’s especially true at the top of the order, with Trea Turner, Josh Harrison and Yadiel Hernandez again the 1-2-3. Schwarber did get moved up to the cleanup spot, with Starlin Castro back down to the sixth spot. And Andrew Stevenson gets the nod in center field over Victor Robles.
