Nationals center-fielder Roger Bernadina was scratched from the lineup Saturday because of tightness in his left hamstring and had been held out of the lineup ever since. Manager Jim Riggleman had said it was just a precautionary move, and we now know he wasn't lying.

Rick Ankiel got the start Tuesday night and had to be removed for a pinch hitter in the second inning after straining his left intercostal (ribcage) muscle (Mark Zuckerman via Twitter).

There was an interesting symmetry to the departure of Ankiel, because Bernadina was the man who replaced him. He collected a pair of singles in his first two at-bats, too.
