The Washington Nationals survived a ninth inning scare to beat the San Francisco Giants 9-6 Wednesday.
Here's the latest Nationals and Giants news:
Second baseman Brian Dozier was left out of the starting lineup Wednesday due to a toe injury. Dozier fouled a pitch off his toe and had to have it drained, according to Nats manager Davey Martinez. Howie Kendrick took Dozier's place at second base.
In other injury news, Martinez told reporters there is still no definitive timetable for shortstop Trea Turner's return to action, but said the shortstop is "doing everything possible" to get back in the lineup. Turner is on the 10-day injured list with a non-displaced fracture in his right index finger.
First baseman Tyler Austin tested his right arm after batting practice Wednesday to see if he could return to the lineup Thursday. Austin has been dealing with inflammation in his right elbow.
