MLB TV has tonight’s game starting at 7:00 Eastern time.

Correct, Jeff. The online TV guide says game starts 6pm Central but 7pm Eastern.

Nationals lineup: Denard Span (CF), Ian Desmond (SS), Jayson Werth (LF), Bryce Harper (RF), Ryan Zimmerman (1B), Yunel Escobar (3B), WIlson Ramos (C), Danny Espinosa (2B), Gio Gonzalez (RHP)

I don’t see any difference in your lineup than what Jenifer already posted. Am I missing something…or did you simply copy & paste her Nationals lineup and re-post again, just for grins?

Who are the announcers tonight?

It’s on Fox Sports Midwest, and OUR announcers are calling the plays. Tim McCarver & a local sportscaster named Dan McLaughlin. I thought I read that some new stat-thing was supposed to be used tonite…but haven’t seen the stat-screen put up.

St Louis Cardinals announcers, I meant.
