Two innings after Yunel Escobar went down, Michael Taylor left Thursday night's game after colliding with the center field wall.
Nationals third baseman Yunel Escobar left Thursday night's game against the San Diego Padres with an apparent injury.
The Nationals won their third straight series with a 4-2 victory over the Padres, but lost Yunel Escobar and Michael Taylor to injury in the process.
On Thursday, Denard Span was out of the lineup after feeling soreness in his back, the same area of the injury that kept him out for over six weeks.
