The Washington Nationals are looking to sweep the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday evening after roughing up Roy Halladay on Tuesday night in a 5-1 win. On Wednesday, the Nats will get back third baseman Ryan Zimmerman, who was a late scratch from the lineup. Zimmerman has a shoulder issue and wanted to play, but was shut down as a precaution. He's back in the lineup against the series finale against Philadelphia, however.
Here's the rest of the Nats lineup:
Zim back: Espinosa 4, Harper 9, Zim 5, LaRoche, Desmond, Ankiel 8, Nady 7, Flores, Jackson— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) May 23, 2012
For the Phillies, Cole Hamels will take the mound to try and avoid the sweep and fight back to .500.
