The Washington Nationals are looking for a sweep in their series against the New York Mets on Thursday afternoon. The one major change in the lineup for the Nationals is Jhonatan Solano starting at catcher on Thursday. Manager Davey Johnson has left the 1-7 spots in the lineup the same for the afternoon game with pitcher Chien-Ming Wang starting for Washington.
