For everything that went on at Nationals Park on Saturday, the five pitches Drew Storen threw might have gone unnoticed. His boss definitely noticed.
For the first time since April 14, the Nationals are as close to having their full complement of players as they will likely get all year. An offense that has languished among the league's worst all season posted 23 runs in its previous two games heading into Tuesday night's contest against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Before the game, Dan Haren was told the team was planning to place him on the DL with shoulder stiffness. Jayson Werth, playing in his 17th game since returning from a hamstring strain that cost him 28, left in the fourth inning with a left groin pull but hopes to avoid a similar fate to Haren's.
Once again, the Nationals struggled for runs when Stephen Strasburg was on the mound.
Desmond was an All-Star in 2012, but an oblique injury kept him from taking part in the game. His case to be one this season is strong, and made stronger by injuries to fellow shortstops Troy Tulowitzki of the Rockies (rib) and Everth Cabrera of the Padres (hamstring).
Two pitches after his foul popup fell between Nick Swisher and second baseman Jason Kipnis, Rendon homered into the Nationals' bullpen off Vinnie Pestano (1-2) to stun the Indians and the crowd of 33,307.
More than two months into the season, the Nationals finally placed Danny Espinosa on the disabled list Tuesday. It was one of a flurry of moves the team needed to make, mostly with its pitching staff, as it attempts to regain some of its luster that's been lost in a 28-29 start.
An approaching storm was a fitting scene for the Nationals, who fell 6-3 in the finale of this three-game series, as they dropped below .500 for the first time since April. The Braves, who've now beaten the Nationals in seven of the teams' 10 meetings, are 6 ½ games ahead of them in the National League East standings.
Ryan Zimmerman hit three home runs in his first three at-bats for the Washington Nationals and is seeking to make history by hitting four homers in a game.
