One night after watching Chien-Ming Wang labor through another start while Ross Detwiler dominated out of the bullpen, the two pitchers have swapped roles again.
In a 5-4 loss to the Rays, the Nationals not only caught Joel Peralta with pine tar in his glove but also saw Chien-Ming Wang struggle once again.

The June 1 rainout against Atlanta at Nationals Park will be made up as a day-night doubleheader on July 21.
Jayson Werth's broken left wrist is recovering well, and the Nationals right fielder remains on target to return to the club around August 1, perhaps earlier.
