Nationals Vs. Braves Lineup: Michael Morse Misses Second Straight Game

Washington Nationals outfielder Michael Morse will be forced to miss a second consecutive game due to a bone bruise in left wrist caused by a torn sheath. On the bright-side, X-Rays came back negative and the injury will not require surgery.

However, that means Morse will not be available for Friday night's game against the Atlanta Braves. It is the first game of a three-game weekend set in Atlanta between the division rivals. Washington is entering the set off a three-game sweep of the New York Mets.
