• In his last Grapefruit League start against the Baltimore Orioles, Nats' right-hander Edwin Jackson gave up 11 hits and 10 runs, seven earned in 3.2 IP over which he walked two and K'd four. In five starts this Spring, the 28-year-old right-hander has given up 26 hits and 18 runs, 13 earned, two home runs and nine walks in 17.0 IP. Jackson told reporters after the rough outing last time out that he isn't concerned with Spring Training stats, having struggled in March in the past before putting together strong campaigns. "'Games like this don't affect my confidence,'" Jackson told the Washington Times' Amanda Comak, "'When we get ready to play, I'll have just as much confidence in myself.'" Jackson takes on the Braves for the first time this Spring at 1:05 pm EDT this afternoon. Adam LaRoche is in the lineup today, playing for the first time since March 15. He's batting sixth and playing the field. Here's the rest of the lineup that will be behind Edwin Jackson when he takes the mound this afternoon in the first game of the split-squad doubleheader the Nationals are playing today...

  1. Ian Desmond - SS
  2. Danny Espinosa - 2B
