The Battle of the Beltways’ finale

Tom Gorzelanny makes his first start after coming off the disabled list today, as the Nats look to sweep the Orioles right back up the parkway to Baltimore and extend their win streak to nine games in a row. Rick Ankiel was placed on the disabled list with a left intercostal strain in the same roster move.

Here are today’s lineups for the Beltways finale:

Orioles:

JJ Hardy – SS

Nick Markakis – RF

Adam Jones – CF

Derrek Lee – 1B

Nolan Reimold – LF

Mark Reynolds – 3B

Craig Tatum – C

Robert Andino – 2B

Chris Jakubauskas – P

Nationals:

Jayson Werth – RF

Roger Bernadina – CF

Ryan Zimmerman – 3B

Laynce Nix – LF

Michael Morse – 1B

Danny Espinosa – 2B

Wilson Ramos – C

Tom Gorzelanny – P

Alex Cora – SS

*Washington is currently only one of three teams to have at least four players with double-digit home runs – Morse with 13, Espinosa with 12, and Nix and Werth both with 10.

*Ian Desmond’s personal hit streak ended at 11 games, as he went 0-for-4 yesterday afternoon. Today he gets the day off, with Cora getting the start at short.
