Nationals Vs. Brewers: Livan Hernandez Looks To Stop Washington's Skid

There's no doubt about it: the Washington Nationals are in a rut. The Nationals lost their fourth straight and fifth in the last six games on Monday night, getting blown out, 11-3, by the Milwaukee Brewers. Washington looks to bounce back on Tuesday night in the second game of a three-game series at Miller Park, and will send Livan Hernandez to the mound looking to stop the bleeding.

Hernandez fell to 3-6 last week when he was the hard-luck loser in Thursday's 1-0 loss to the New York Mets. On Tuesday, he will square off against Chris Narveson, who also was the victim of a 1-0 loss in his last start, though he didn't get the decision.

Washington will make a lineup change, playing Brian Bixler in left field instead of Laynce Nix. The full lineup is as follows.

  1. Roger Bernadina (CF)
  2. Ian Desmond (SS)
  3. Jayson Werth (RF)
  4. Wilson Ramos (C)
  5. Michael Morse (1B)
  6. Danny Espinosa (2B)
  7. Jerry Hairston Jr. (3B)
  8. Brian Bixler (LF)
  9. Livan Hernandez (P)
