Houston Astros Vs. Washington Nationals Wednesday Lineups

The Houston Astros take on the Washington Nationals Wednesday in the nation's capital, looking to snap a three-game winning streak that has dropped Houston four games behind the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals.

Here are the starting lineups for the Nationals and Astros.

Houston Astros

Jordan Schafer, CF
Jed Lowrie, SS
Travis Buck, LF
Carlos Lee, 1B
Brian Bogusevic, RF
Chris Johnson, 3B
Jason Castro, C
Marwin Gonzalez, 2B
Lucas Harrell, SP

Washington Nationals

Ian Desmond, SS
Danny Espinosa, 2B
Ryan Zimmerman, 3B
Adam LaRoche, 1B
Jayson Werth, RF
Rick Ankiel, CF
Wilson Ramos, C
Roger Bernadina, LF
Jordan Zimmermann, SP

As if facing Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez already wasn't tough enough, Houston's offense now has to go up against Jordan Zimmermann, who is plenty good in his own right. The Astros will likely need Harrell to go toe-to-toe against Zimmermann, who has a microscopic 0.79 WHIP through his first two starts.
