SEEN AND HEARD AT NATIONALS PARK

Flu season seems to have arrived early at Nationals Park. A virus kept Cristian Guzman out of Tuesday’s game, and Ryan Zimmerman sat out Wednesday’s game with the flu as well. As for manager Manny Acta?

“I just woke up with a sore throat. I’m fine,” Acta said. “I can lift my right arm [to call for a reliever].”
