Right Achilles acts up again forcing Nix from the game

← return to Nationals Watch

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Laynce Nix was a triple shy of the cycle when he came to the plate in the seventh inning Tuesday night. A single to complete Nix’s first 4-for-4 night, his first in six years, was the end of his workday. His sore right Achilles tightened up and Nix was pulled when he reached first base.

“His Achilles tightened up,” said Nationals manager Davey Johnson. “He was on-base four times, swung the bat real good. Probably won’t play him tomorrow. Can’t afford for him to hurt it worse.”

Nix was unavailable to reporters after the Nationals 11-5 loss to the Angels but the Nationals clubhouse opens in less than 12 hours from now so we’ll check in on Nix at that time.
