Today's lineups

While the Nationals have played cleaner baseball -- putting aside Roger Bernadina's unforgiveable gaffe for the 27th out last night -- they still have produced five runs in two games against the Mets. They can win the series today with Stephen Strasburg on the mound. They'll need to find some offense for him, though. The Nats have failed to score more than one run in any of his past three starts, all of which they've lost.

Manager Jim Riggleman will put Bernadina right back in the lineup today. Adam Kennedy also gets a start against R.A. Dickey in a game nationally televised on FOX.

You're right, Longterm. Our lineup IS better than the Mets. But we've got Riggleman, so...advantage: Mets.

How can we win the series today with a win. Isn't it a 4 game series and we have split the first two?? We can at least split the series with a win today.

R. A. Dickey vs. Strasburg. Makes you wonder whether Walter Johnson ever faced off against a knuckler.

Bernadina is not playing. "Out with a stiff low back". Probably from the beating that he received from the rest of the team.
