We're just headed down now to see what Washington Nationals' skipper Davey Johnson has to say about his decision to mix things up a little bit with tonight's lineup. Steve Lombardozzi's leading off and playing second with Danny Espinosa sitting tonight. Ian Desmond's hitting sixth after leading off in every game so far this season. Jesus Flores gets the day off with Carlos Maldonado behind the plate for the first time in the majors since June 3, 2010 and Ross Detwiler's on the mound in D.C. while Chien-Ming Wang's up in Syracuse making what could be his last rehab start before he returns to the Nationals.

Here's tonight's lineup via the Washington Times' Amanda Comak on Twitter (@AComak). Thoughts from Davey Johnson to follow:
