Game 159: Nationals at Cardinals

Adam Berry here at Busch Stadium, pinch-hitting for Bill Ladson. For more news and notes and in-game updates, check out and follow me on Twitter @adamdberry.

The Nationals’ magic number is down to one after last night’s 6-4 win over the Cardinals in 10 innings, and they arrived to Busch Stadium this morning with a chance to officially clinch the National League East title. Another victory over St. Louis would set off Washington’s celebration, as would a loss by the Braves against the Mets.

Here are today’s lineups…

Nationals (96-62)
Werth RF
Harper CF
Zimmerman 3B
LaRoche 1B
Morse LF
Desmond SS
Espinosa 2B
Suzuki C
Detwiler LHP

Cardinals (85-73)
Jay CF
Beltran RF
Holliday LF
Craig 1B
Molina C
Freese 3B
Descalso 2B
Kozma SS
Lynn RHP
