Nationals, Davey Johnson set Game 2 lineup

Second verse, same as the first. Though the Nationals are facing left-hander Jaime Garcia, their lineup is exactly the same as it was when they were facing right-hander Adam Wainwright:

1. Jayson Werth - RF
2. Bryce Harper* - CF
3. Ryan Zimmerman - 3B
4. Adam LaRoche* - 1B
5. Michael Morse - LF
6. Ian Desmond - SS
7. Danny Espinosa# - 2B
8. Kurt Suzuki - C
9. Jordan Zimmermann - P

I'm starting to get used to the idea of Jayson Werth leading off, though I'm sure he'll be back in the middle of the lineup next year. Pretty sure the Nationals weren't looking for an expensive leadoff hitter when they got Werth.

Considering that Bryce Harper is a teenager, his .240/.300/.415 line against left-handers is kind of impressive. The other lefty in the lineup -- LaRoche -- has some platoon splits as well, but he still hits for power against southpaws, with a career line of .250/.305/.445.
