Danny Espinosa lobbied to play the second game of Wednesday’s doubleheader but Nationals Manager Davey Johnson wanted him to rest his shoulder. 

“I’m glad be came through that game alright,” Johnson said. “That’s good.”

Michael Morse and Ryan Zimmerman will play the second game as well, despite Johnson saying earlier he wanted to rest them, too. Jesus Flores will start instead of Kurt Suzuki, who caught the first game.
