Lineups: Nationals Finally Face Off Against Tigers


After a day off and a rain delay, the Nationals will finally take the field tonight… if the rain holds out, that is. If the weather gods smile upon us, the Nationals will send Jordan Zimmermann (5-1, 1.64) out to face Anibal Sanchez (3-2, 1.82). Jayson Werth, originally scheduled to play tonight, will not be in the lineup due to lingering tightness in his injured hamstring. Davey Johnsonmaintains that Werth should avoid the DL. Here are tonight’s lineups:
