Nationals Vs. Blue Jays: Rick Ankiel Starts In Center Field As Washington Looks For Fifth Straight Win

The Washington Nationals go for a fifth straight win against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday. The one major change in the lineup will be Rick Ankiel starting in center field in place of Roger Bernadina, who was left Monday's game with a leg injury in the top of the fourth inning.

The rest of the Nationals lineup is as follows.

The Nationals will send Chien-Ming Wang to the mound for Tuesday's game. He is looking for his second win of the season and could get it against a Toronto team that has struggled to bring runs around lately.
