Here’s a look at tonight’s lineup as Gio Gonzalez makes his 2013 debut.
#Nats Lineup: Span CF, Werth RF, Harper LF, Zimmerman 3B, LaRoche 1B, Desmond SS, Espinosa 2B, Suzuki C, Gonzalez LHP
— Washington Nationals (@Nationals) April 3, 2013
Bryce Harper stays in the 3-spot as he looks to build on his phenomenal Opening Day performance, and the rest of the offense looks to get going. Nationals bats combined for just three hits outside of Harper’s two home runs, and while having Harper and his hitting capabilities in the lineup is a huge asset to the Nationals, others will need to produce if the Nats want to repeat as NL East Champions this year. It’s Game 2, and certainly not time to panic. But, we’ll see if the bats are ready now after getting through their Opening Day jitters.
