The Nationals gave stars Bryce Harper and Anthony Rendon the day off on Thursday as they prepared to take on the Atlanta Braves in their series finale.
Ian Desmond knows one swing will not solve all of his problems and break him out of his worst offensive funk in years. After all, it wasn't even a hit.
In the 11th inning after smoking a double to right-center field against the Braves, Bryce Harper ran through second base and stopped short before leaning down to put his hands on his knees.
The Nationals' bullpen has been through its fair share of changes this season, largely due to injuries up and down their pitching staff.
