Lineups

Dodgers (8-9):

* Yesterday, Casey Blake smashed a two-run homer in the 2nd inning in his first career at-bat against Craig Stammen. In the 7th inning, Blake again went deep off Stammen, this time for a solo shot. It was the 9th multi-homer game of Blake’s career and the second of the season for the Dodgers–the other came from Andre Ethier on April 16 vs. San Francisco.

 

 Nationals (9-9):

1.      Nyjer Morgan – CF

2.      Adam Kennedy – 3B

3.      Cristian Guzman – 2B

4.      Adam Dunn – 1B

5.      Josh Willingham – LF

6.      Ivan Rodriguez – C

7.      Ian Desmond – SS

8.      Justin Maxwell – RF

9.   Scott Olsen- SP (0-1. 11.74)

* Craig Stammen collected his first career multi-hit game yesterday, going 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI. Stammen is now 3-for-9 (.333) at the plate this season.

* Washington had no problem getting men on base yesterday. Getting them across home plate proved more difficult. Washington left 15 men on base in yesterday’s 13-inning heartbreaker.

* Ivan Rodriguez’s defensive reputation and presence has ostensibly shut down the running game of Nationals opponents…in Rodriguez’s 13 starts, opponents have attempted just one stolen base.
