Mike Morse day-to-day with calf injury, Cristian Guzman plays right
Mike Morse said he is "day-to-day" after leaving Wednesday night's game with a sore left calf, which he hurt while catching a fly out in the seventh inning.
"It was just a cramp that wouldn't go away," Morse said after the game. "Just a little strain. It's feeling a lot better now."
The injury spoiled Morse's first start in right field, but it also allowed Cristian Guzman to play right field for the first time in his career. Guzman made one catch on an easy, shallow fly ball, and he also hit a triple on the only pitch he saw. Manager Jim Riggleman had been looking for a low-pressure situation to test Guzman, and the Nationals trailed by three runs.
"He's getting more and more comfortable out there," Riggleman said. "We hated to see Mike come out of the ball game. But it gave us a chance to Guzie an at-bat, and he's probably going to be in there tomorrow somewhere."
