Let’s play two

 After a thrilling comeback victory last night, highlighted with the walk-off single by Matt Stairs, the Nationals look to carry that momentum into today’s doubleheader. We’re already underway here at Nationals Park, where fans continue to stream into the stadium.

Here are the lineups:

Pirates:

Alex Presley – LF

Chase d’Arnaud – SS

Garrett Jones – RF

Andrew McCutchen – CF

Niel Walker – 2B

Lyle Overbay – 1B

Brandon Wood – 3B

Michael McKenry – C

James McDonald – P

Nationals:

Roger Bernadina – CF

Jayson Werth – RF

Ryan Zimmerman – 3B

Laynce Nix – LF

Michael Morse – 1B

Danny Espinosa – 2B

Ivan Rodriguez – C

Ian Desmond – SS

Livan Hernandez – P

*The last time Pittsburgh played a twin-billing in the Capital was in 1899.

*Livan Hernandez has struck out the Pirates 64 times during his career. He’s also only allowed 10 home runs in 17 starts.

*Look for an update between games for Game Two’s lineups.
