Doubleheader, part deux

After dropping the first of today’s games 5-3, the Nats will try to avoid a sweep and re-take control of the series. John Lannan is on the mound in the nightcap.
Here are Game two’s lineups:

Pirates:

Alex Presley – LF
Chase d’Arnaud – SS
Andrew McCutchen – CF
Garrett Jones – 1B
Matt Diaz – RF
Neil Walker – 2B
Josh Harrison – 3B
Eric Fryer – C
Brad Lincoln – P

Nationals:

Roger Bernadina – LF
Danny Espinosa – 2B
Ryan Zimmerman – 3B
Michael Morse – 1B
Jayson Werth – RF
Rick Ankiel – CF
Wilson Ramos – C
Ian Desmond – SS
John Lannan – P

*Rick Ankiel’s home run in today’s first game not only kept the Nats fighting, but it was his first round-tripper of the year since April 2.

*John Lannan has struck out the Pirates 27 times. In the batter’s box, he’s fared well – he has a double and an RBI off of Pittsburgh pitching.

*Don’t forget to watch tomorrow’s All-Star Selection Show to see who from your Nationals will represent the team in this year’s All-Star Game!
