    Nationals’ lineup vs D-Backs: Still no Daniel Murphy...

    Daniel Murphy has now missed over a week with a strain of his left buttock. Over the weekend, Dusty Baker told reporters that the injury wasn’t responding to treatment, so the Nationals made the decision to shut the second baseman down completely for a few days. Though Murphy clearly aggravated something legging out a double and sliding into second base during the Nationals’ visit to Atlanta’s Turner Field two weekends back, Baker said he didn’t think it was something that happened on one play in particular. “Usually you don’t really do it on one play,” he said, as quoted by Washington Post writer Chelsea Janes. “It’s a progression when your legs are getting tired.

    All credit to Wade Miley, because he simply did a better job of pitching tonight than Robbie Ray. Miley was very effective, keeping the ball down and throwing strikes, and the Diamondbacks didn't seem to know how to handle him. As a result, he took a shutout into the ninth inning, and it was only broken up with two outs there, as Brandon Drury banged a ball off the fence in right-field, scoring Paul Goldschmidt. Goldie had three hits in the game, and got his average back up above .300 as a result, but that was probably the sole bright-spot here. Robbie Ray was extremely lucky to escape the first inning with only a single run scoring, but there was not such escape for him the fourth, and Chip
