Nats Seek a Seattle Sweep

The Nationals won the series last night with a 2-1 victory over the Mariners, thanks to solid pitching performances by John Lannan, Henry Rodriguez, Sean Burnett and Drew Storen. They’ll attempt to sweep the series and get a game over .500 today.

Here are today’s lineups:

 

Mariners:

Ichiro Suzuki – RF

Dustin Ackley – 2B

Adam Kennedy – 3B

Justin Smoak – 1B

Miguel Olivo – C

Mike Carp – LF

Franklin Gutierrez – CF

Justin Wilson – SS

Michael Pineda – P

 

Nationals:

Roger Bernadina – CF

Jayson Werth – RF

Ryan Zimmerman – 3B

Michael Morse – 1B

Danny Espinosa – 2B

Ivan Rodriguez – C

Jerry Hairston – LF

Jason Marquis – P

Ian Desmond – SS

 

*In three career starts against the Mariners, Jason Marquis is 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA. He’s struck them out 13 times while allowing only one home run.

 

*With last night’s victory, this has been the latest in any season since the end of the 2005 season (when they ended the season at 81-81) that the Nationals have been at .500. The last time they were even this year was May 11.
