Nationals Vs. Pirates Lineup: Bryce Harper Bats Fifth As Jordan Zimmermann Starts Against Pittsburgh

The Washington Nationals close out their two-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night. Probably the biggest change in the lineup for the Nationals will be that right fielder Bryce Harper will bat fifth in the lineup on Thursday night.

Left fielder Roger Bernadina will bat out of the second spot in the lineup. Rick Ankiel will start in center field for the Nationals and bat out of the eighth spot in the lineup.

Jordan Zimmermann will take to the mound for the Nationals on Thursday and look to pull his 2012 pitching record, currently 2-3, even.

The game is scheduled for a 7:05 p.m. first pitch.
