Another game against the Nationals, but on Jackie Robinson Day.

Today is a special day, for today is Jackie Robinson Day. 70 years ago today, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball. Today, all players wear the number 42, which is a touching tribute that’s worth the confusion we all feel when trying to figure out just who is who on the field.

And now, the lineups.

Today's Lineups

Cesar Hernandez - 2B Wilmer Difo - SS
Howie Kendrick - LF Anthony Rendon - 3B
Odubel Herrera - CF Bryce Harper - RF
Maikel Franco - 3B Daniel Murphy - 2B
Michael Saunders - RF Ryan Zimmerman - 1B
Tommy Joseph - 1B Chris Heisey - LF
Andrew Knapp - C Michael Taylor - CF
Freddy Galvis - SS Jose Lobaton - C
Jeremy Hellickson - RHP Tanner Roark - RHP

The return of Jeremy Hellickson! He was in the process of pitching a gem last week when a forearm cramp limited his outing to just five innings. Let’s hope he’s properly hydrated today so he can dazzle us again.
