Braves Vs. Nationals: John Lannan, Nats Look For First Win Of 2011 MLB Season

After a 2-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on MLB Opening Day 2011, the Washington Nationals will turn to pitcher John Lannan in search of their first win this season.

The young left-hander finished 8-8 in 2010 with a 4.67 ERA in 25 starts.

According to Ben Goessling of MASNsports.com, Wilson Ramos will be making his first start of the year catching for Lannan today. The projected starter of the future at the catcher position will be splitting time with veteran Ivan Rodriguez early in the season. The rest of the Nationals' lineup for today, according to Goessling, is as follows:

 

Ian Desmond - SS
Jayson Werth - RF
Ryan Zimmerman - 3B
Adam LaRoche - 1B
Michael Morse - LF
Rick Ankiel - CF
Danny Espinosa - 2B
Ramos - C
Lannan - P

This is the second game of the three-game series that will conclude Sunday starting at 1:35 PM. Both games can be seen live on MASN.
