Rays Vs. Nationals: Steve Lombardozzi Bats Leadoff, Adam LaRoche Back In Cleanup Spot

The Washington Nationals will try to stop their four-game losing streak Wednesday evening against the Tampa Devil Rays, and manager Davey Johnson has made some changes to the lineup that will try to support Stephen Strasburg.

Steve Lombardozzi is back in the leadoff spot after sitting out Tuesday's game against left-handed Tampa Bay starter David Price. Elsewhere in the lineup, Adam LaRoche is back in the cleanup spot, bumping Michael Morse down to No. 5 in the order, and Danny Espinosa is dropped to the seventh spot in the order after taking Lombardozzi's leadoff spot. The full lineup is below.
