As the Washington Nationals open up a three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night, Bryce Harper will be starting again in right field after not starting on Sunday. Harper has been nursing a tender back lately, but showed no ill effects as he scored the eventual game-winning run in the top of the ninth inning.
The rest of the lineup is as follows.
Tonight's lineup: Lombardozzi, lf; Harper, rf; Zim, 3b; LaRoche, 1b; Morse, dh; Desmond, ss; Espinosa, 2b; Bernadina, cf; Flores, c; EJax, p— Nationals PR (@NationalsPR) June 11, 2012
Aside from Harper the Nationals will be using the same position players, save for Xavier Nady, using Morse in the designated hitter position. The Nationals hope that this lineup will be able to extend the winning streak they started in Boston.
