Nationals

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.
The Nationals are putting Denard Span back on the disabled list with swelling in his left hip, an injury that could end his season.
Denard Span will have season-ending hip surgery, but Michael Taylor avoided serious injury on his scary collision Thursday night.
