The Nationals have been hampered by injuries this season, more so recently. They will be without Bryce Harper for a few games as he deals with left knee bursitis. They’ll need a fill-in starter for Tuesday. Danny Espinosa is dealing with a fractured right wrist. Jayson Werth, Ross Detwiler and Wilson Ramos are on the disabled list. Gio Gonzalez (3-2, 3.66 ERA) takes the mound against the Orioles and right-hander Jason Hammel (6-2, 5.37 ERA). The lineups are here. As always, discussion the game here.
