During the Tony La Russa years in St. Louis, you could often count on La Russa to shake up lineups in the postseason, especially if the team had lost the previous day.
Mike Matheny is no Tony La Russa. His lineup for Game 2 is precisely the same as the lineup for Game 1, except, of course, for the pitcher:
Garcia made five starts for the Cardinals in the 2011 postseason, throwing 25⅔ innings with a 4.21 ERA. Lifetime against the Nationals he has a 3.74 ERA in four career starts covering 21⅔ innings. The last time he faced the Nats was August 30 in Washington, where he got roughed up for nine hits and six earned runs in 5⅓ innings, including home runs by Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper.
Current Nats are hitting .377 (29-for-77) against today's Nats starter, Jordan Zimmermann, with two home runs (David Freese and Matt Holliday).
