Reds Vs. Nationals: Ross Detwiler Looks To Give Nationals Another Win

Ross Detwiler will once again look for his second win of the season as the Nationals take on the Reds with a new lineup.

Ross Detwiler will take the hill for the Washington Nationals looking to give them a second straight win over the Cincinnati Reds at Nationals Park on Wednesday night. Detwiler is looking for his second win of the season after once again coming up short in a loss to the Chicago Cubs. He won his first start, pitched in relief for a while and has not won since.

The Nationals won Tuesday night's game, 6-4, and are looking for a second win over the Reds. Johnny Cueto will be the man starting for the Reds in this one.

The big news is that Davey Johnson has made a lineup change, bumping the slumping Danny Espinosa down from No. 2 to No. 6 in the order. August has been Espinosa's worst month, and he has struggled in particular since the All-Star break. Also, Ian Desmond will get a chance to hit leadoff.

Here is the Nationals' lineup:

  1. Ian Desmond (SS)
  2. Rick Ankiel (CF)
  3. Ryan Zimmerman (3B)
  4. Michael Morse (1B)
  5. Jayson Werth (RF)
  6. Danny Espinosa (2B)
  7. Jonny Gomes (LF)
  8. Wilson Ramos (C)
  9. Ross Detwiler (P)
