Astros Vs. Nationals: Monday Night Lineups

The Houston Astros look to turn around their recent losing ways on Monday night, as the Astros open up a series against the first-place Washington Nationals.

The starting lineups for both teams have been announced, and they are as follows:

Washington Nationals

SS Danny Espinosa
CF Bryce Harper
3B Ryan Zimmerman
LF Michael Morse
1B Adam LaRoche
RF Jayson Werth
C Kurt Suzuki
2B Steve Lombardozzi
SP Edwin Jackson

Houston Astros

2B Jose Altuve
SS Marwin Gonzalez
1B Brett Wallace
RF Justin Maxwell
3B Scott Moore
LF J.D. Martinez
CF Jordan Schafer
C Carlos Corporan
SP Dallas Keuchel

Astros fans will get a look at one of baseball's youngest sensations, as Bryce Harper is batting second for Davey Johnson's Nationals.

Keuchel faces a tough task, as Washington's lineup is fairly potent. Keuchel has also lost each of his last four starts, and has surrendered more than four earned runs in each of those starts.
