Derek Dietrich - 2B Anthony Rendon - 3B
G. Stanton - RF Jayson Werth - RF
Casey McGehee - 3B Adam LaRoche - 1B

H. Alvarez - RHP Blake Treinen - RHP

Miami turns to their regular right-handed pitching lineup in game two of the series. Derek Dietrich remains in the two spot, and Giancarlo Stanton and Casey McGehee are hitting three and four, respectively, after carrying Miami's offense on Monday afternoon.

Kevin Frandsen gets the start at second base for the Nationals, who scored just a pair of runs against Nathan Eovaldi on Monday.

Notes

-How will Alvarez pitch? After a solid outing by Nathan Eovaldi, a solid outing would save a bullpen that has been called upon frequently of late.

-Can the Marlins score against Treinen? Three runs was sufficient on Monday, but should Alvarez struggle, the Marlins may have consistently add on.

Bold Prediction: Nationals def. Marlins 4-3
