LoMo's back, will the Marlins keep winning in D.C.?

WASHINGTON -- After a tough 2-4 homestand, the Marlins get back at it tonight here at Nationals Park, a place they've had a lot of success before. 

In fact, the Marlins 19-7 record here all-time is second only to the Phillies (20-10) for the most wins by an opponent.

Chris Volstad will start tonight and try to capture the Marlins seventh straight win here. Volstad (2-2, 5.73) will start opposite left-hander Tom Gorzelanny (2-2, 2.87), who did a good job taming the Marins' bats in last Saturday's win for the Nationals at Sun Life Stadium.

The big news for the Marlins is Logan Morrison is back in the lineup. Morrison was hitting .327 with a team leading four homers and 11 RBI when he went down with a sprained left arch on April 19. Tonight will mark only the 10th time this season Morrison, Chris Coghlan and Mike Stanton will all be in the outfield together. The Marlins are 6-3 in the previous nine games when that's happened.

> Marlins (21-15): 1. Chris Coghlan CF; 2. Emilio Bonifaco 3B; 3. Hanley Ramirez SS; 4. Gaby Sanchez 1B; 5. John Buck C; 6. Logan Morrison LF; 7. Mike Stanton RF; 8. Omar Infante 2B; 9. Chris Volstad.

> Nationals (18-19): 1. Roger Bernadina CF; 2. Ian Desmond SS; 3. Jayson Werth RF; 4. Adam LaRoche 1B; 5. Wilson Ramos C; 6. Laynce Nix LF; 7. Danny Espinosa 2B; 8. Jerry Hairson 3B; 9. Tom Gorzellany P.
