Nats look to regain control in Game 3

The Nationals can regain control of this four-game series against Arizona tonight, as Livan Hernandez takes the mound against Daniel Hudson.
Here are tonight’s lineups:

Diamondbacks:
Ryan Roberts – 3B
Gerardo Parra – LF
Justin Upton – RF
Miguel Montero – C
Chris Young – CF
Lyle Overbay – 1B
Aaron Hill – 2B
John McDonald – SS
Daniel Hudson – P

Nationals:
Ian Desmond – SS
Rick Ankiel – CF
Ryan Zimmerman – 3B
Michael Morse – 1B
Danny Espinosa – 2B
Laynce Nix – RF
Jonny Gomes – LF
Wilson Ramos – C
Livan Hernandez – P

*In case you missed it yesterday, the Diamondbacks traded Kelly Johnson to Toronto for Aaron Hill and John McDonald, who are both in the Diamondbacks’ lineup tonight.

*Jayson Werth is out of the lineup tonight after sustaining a minor groin strain yesterday evening. He was replaced in the ninth inning last night by Brian Bixler and is continuing to rest it today, but told the media today he doesn’t think it’s “going to be a big deal.” Nix gets the start in right instead, with Gomes in left.

*Against Arizona, Livo is 11-8 with a 3.56 ERA in 22 starts in his career.
