Nationals Vs. Dodgers: John Lannan Looks To Get Back Into Win Column

John Lannan takes the hill looking to give the Nationals a win in the first game of a four-game series at Nationals Park.

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into Nationals Park on Labor Day Monday for the first of a four-game series this week. While the marquee matchup will occur on Tuesday with Stephen Strasburg's return, Monday's game is a big one because the two teams are going in opposite directions. The Dodgers had won six games in a row before losing on Sunday, while the Nationals have lost 10 of their past 12.

John Lannan takes the hill for the Nationals looking to end a personal four-game losing streak. He last pitched in a 3-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves last week. He is looking to improve on his 8-11 record this season. Hiroki Kuroda will pitch for the Dodgers, looking to improve on his 11-14 record on the season.

Here is the Nationals' lineup:

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