Wilson Ramos returns to the Nationals lineup after missing two games with a hamstring he tweaked trying to beat out a groundout in the fourth inning on Tuesday. He was at Turner Field early with a trainer and running in the outfield without any apparent issue.

The Nationals are 23-17 in games started by Ramos. They face left-handed starter Alex Wood for the first time this season. They are last in the majors with a .221 average against left-handed pitchers.
