The Washington Nationals had their six-game winning streak snapped on Friday night in a 7-2 loss to the New York Yankees, and will send Jordan Zimmermann to the hill on Saturday looking to silence the New York bats. Danny Espinosa will hit in the leadoff spot against veteran lefty Andy Pettitte. Here is the full Washington lineup, via the team's official twitter feed:
