PHOTO: Michael Morse's Long Home Run In Nationals' Win Over Cardinals

Morse_hr_medium

Nationals first baseman Michael Morse blasted a pair of home runs during Wednesday's win over the CardinalsThe first one gave the Nats a 1-0 lead, and the second one traveled 445 feet to left center field, plating Laynce Nix to run the score to 8-0.

With the two dingers, Morse now has 12 homers on the year, to go along with 40 RBI's and a .312 batting average. He's doing it all at the plate this year, getting on base at a .354 clip while slugging .561 for a .915 OPS. 

I doubt he'll maintain this pace for much longer, but Morse's strong start coupled with last year's solid performance means we can expect solid production out of him for the foreseeable future. So far he's been everything Nats fans have hoped Jayson Werth would be this season. He even has a decent beard to go along with his impressive numbers.
