Player Notes
Ian Desmond walked and hit a two-run home run in four trips to the plate, but the Nationals couldn't overcome the Phillies in the second game of Sunday's doubleheader.

Advice: Desmond clubbed a two-run home run off of Severino Gonzalez in the fourth inning, helping chip into the four-run deficit the Nationals had entering the frame. It's his seventh round-tripper of the year and his 22nd and 23rd RBI's. He carries a mediocre .225/.269/.356 triple-slash line.

Ian Desmond is not in the Nationals' lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

Advice: The struggling Desmond was on the bench Friday and would have sat out Saturday as well if it wasn't for Yunel Escobar coming down with a stomach bug. There's still upside here, but he might continue to lose playing time to Danny Espinosa until he turns things around.

Ian Desmond is not in the Nationals starting lineup against the Pirates on Saturday.

Advice: The struggling infielder is sitting a second straight game in favor of the hot-hitting Danny Espinosa. Desmond is hitting just .224/.269/.346 with five homers and 18 RBI on the season with a 79/13 K/BB ratio in 67 games.
