The Washington Nationals had a second straight game with an injury scare when second baseman Danny Espinosa was hit with a pitch on the right wrist in the second inning on Sunday. Espinosa, who is traditionally among the National League leaders in getting hit by pitches, was hit with an 88-mph fastball from Braves left-hander Paul Maholm. He remained in the game initially, but was replaced by Steve Lombardozzi in the top of the fifth inning as the wrist continued to throb.
