Nationals Vs. Brewers Lineups: Rick Ankiel Released

The Washington Nationals announced prior to their game Friday that outfielder Rick Ankiel has been released. Ankiel, who was hitting .228 with five home runs and 15 RBIs in 68 games, was designated for assignment on July 19 before clearing waivers.

Ankiels struggles in 2012 have had little effect on the team however, as the Nationals are looking to extend their winning streak to eight games and keep control of the best record in the National League.

Here are the lineups for Friday's game.
