Homestand wraps up in series finale

Back-to-back home runs on consecutive pitches by Laynce Nix and Jonny Gomes last night put the Nats on the board late, but the rally was stifled by the D-Backs’ closer. Tonight, DC has a chance to split the series and finish the homestand strong. John Lannan gets the call tonight.
Here are tonight’s lineups:

Ryan Roberts – 3B
Gerardo Parra – LF
Justin Upton – RF
Chris Young – CF
Miguel Montero – C
Paul Goldschmidt – 1B
Aaron Hill – 2B
John McDonald – SS
Wade Miley – P

Ian Desmond – SS
Brian Bixler – CF
Ryan Zimmerman – 3B
Michael Morse – 1B
Jayson Werth – RF
Danny Espinosa – 2B
Jonny Gomes – LF
Jesus Flores – C
John Lannan – P

*In four career starts against Arizona, Lannan is 3-1 with a 1.04 ERA.

*Jayson Werth is back in the lineup this evening after taking a night off to rest a groin strain he sustained in Tuesday night’s game.

*Ryan Zimmerman’s streak of consecutive games in which he reached base safely ended last night at 29 games. During that stretch, he hit .407 with eight doubles, a triple and four home runs.
