A team of Washington Nationals will take on the Georgetown Hoyas this afternoon in an exhibition game that isn't being broadcast anywhere that we can tell. The Nationals released the starting lineup yesterday and they Tweeted the lineup card (via @NationalsPR) this morning which shows that '11 3rd Round pick Matt Purke will be on the mound today with a makeshift team of young Nats behind him. Here's the lineup:

  1. Steve Lombardozzi - 2B
  2. Xavier Paul - LF
  3. Bryce Harper - RF
  4. Tyler Moore - 1B
  5. Brett Carroll - DH
  6. Anthony Rendon - 3B
  7. Corey Brown - CF
  8. Andres Blanco - SS
  9. Sandy Leon - C
• The usual suspects: MLB.com's Bill Ladson (@washingnats), the WaPost's Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP), NatsInsider.com's Mark Zuckerman (@MarkZuckerman), the Washington Times' Amanda Comak (@AComak) etc, should be tweeting live from the game if you want to follow along. We'll be out of the office, but feel free to help your fellow readers out with updates if you're following along. Tomorrow the Nats take on the Astros. Today it's the Hoyas. Spring baseball starts....RIGHT NOW!!!
