Cora, Hairston set to start for Nats on Tuesday
WASHINGTON -- Because of the two off-days in less than a week, Nationals manager Jim Riggleman hasn't been able to give his bench enough playing time. Only outfielder Laynce Nix had been able to get official at-bats entering Sunday's action.

However, Riggleman is planning to start Alex Cora and Jerry Hairston against the Marlins on Tuesday. Cora has yet to make an appearance, while Hairston had made two appearances and drew a walk. Hairston is expected to platoon with Rick Ankiel in center field.
