Both Ian Desmond and Michael Morse are back for the Nationals after missing essentially all of the past three games. Desmond has been nursing a mild hamstring strain and had not played since Wednesday. Morse bruised his right hand when he was hit by a pitch in his first at-bat on Friday. The Nationals scored five runs in three games in their absence.
