Nationals Vs. Giants: Jayson Werth In, Michael Morse Out Of Tuesday's Lineup

The Washington Nationals (72-44) have released their lineup for Tuesday night's game against the San Francisco Giants (63-53) at 10:15 p.m. at AT&T Park.

Jayson Werth will be in the Nationals' lineup against the Giants while Michael Morse will not be starting. Werth was originally in the lineup for Monday night's game but was scratched due to a sore ankle. Morse jammed his thumb in batting practice and left Monday night's game after going 1-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and two runs scored.

Here's the full lineup the Nats will use on Tuesday:

Danny Espinosa ss
Bryce Harper cf
Ryan Zimmerman 3b
Jayson Werth rf
Adam LaRoche 1b
Tyler Moore lf
Jesus Flores c
Steve Lombardozzi 2b
Jordan Zimmermann rhp

Zimmermann (9-6, 2.35 ERA) will start opposite Madison Bumgarner (12-7, 3.08 ERA). Zimmerman is 4-0 with a 0.87 ERA in his last five road games. Bumgarner is 4-0 with a 1.61 ERA in his last six starts at home.
