After hitting a walk-off homer Friday night to give the Orioles a 3-2 win, second baseman Jonathan Schoop is taking a seat against the Washington Nationals and right-hander Jordan Zimmermann.

Left-handed-hitting Ryan Flaherty, who has two hits in three career at-bats versus Zimmermann, gets the start at second base over the right-handed-hitting Schoop.

Saturday's Orioles' lineup is pretty representative against a right-hander. Matt Wieters will get a breather again as Caleb Joseph gets the start behind the plate.

Here is the lineup:
