SEEN AND HEARD AT COORS FIELD

DENVER - Second baseman Ronnie Belliard, who surprisingly holds the team lead in home runs with 10, nonetheless will be a utility infielder for the rest of the season as the Nationals move forward with their stated goal of evaluating young players like Emilio Bonifacio. Belliard is able to play anywhere in the infield, which should keep him somewhat of a regular. “We’ll find him at-bats,” manager Manny Acta said.
