Lineups: Nats Look To Salvage Split In Atlanta

In the first two games of this series in Atlanta, the Nats struggled on both sides of the ball. Last night, the bats continued to flail, but Jordan Zimmermann was excellent and threw eight shutout innings to get the Nats the 2-0 victory, their first over Atlanta this season. Tonight’s matchup pits the somewhat struggling Dan Haren (2-3, 6.29) against Kris Medlen (1-3, 3.26). Here are tonight’s lineups:
