Game 102 lineups: Nats at Phillies

As if there hasn’t been enough drama already today, there’s still another ballgame to be played in Philadelphia!

The Nationals and Phillies face off one more time, with another scheduled seven-inning game. And with a big line of thunderstorms bearing down on the area at some point later this afternoon, it may be a good thing the game is only scheduled for seven innings.

Patrick Corbin gets the start, one day after he was originally supposed to pitch. The left-hander may be hours away from becoming the Nats’ de facto No. 1 starter, even if he hasn’t pitched like one this season. No matter what else happens the rest of this year, a strong finish by Corbin would be quite big for him and the club.

Though he officially was optioned to Triple-A Rochester last night, Barrera was called back up to serve as the 27th man for the doubleheader game, so he’s in the lineup catching Corbin this afternoon.
