Danny Espinosa, Michael Morse, Jayson Werth, Ryan Zimmerman, Ian Desmond, and Kurt Suzuki are all on the bench to start the penultimate game of the season, despite the fact that the Nationals remain tied with the Cincinnati Reds for the best record in baseball and can secure the first playoff seed in the National League with a win Tuesday night.
