Nationals SS Ian Desmond pops two-run home run on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond broke out of his prolonged slump in a big way on Thursday. Desmond went 2 for 4, including a two-run home run, his sixth of the year, in the second inning of the 6-0 victory over the Braves. It was his first home run since June 7.

Desmond, who also scored twice, had been hitting a lowly .108 (4 for 37) with 16 strikeouts over his previous 10 games entering play on Thursday. 

"He stayed on a fastball away and hit it over the fence," manager Matt Williams said, per MLB.com. "I'm happy for him that he was able to hit that homer. The ball back through the middle are really good signs. It means he's staying on it and seeing it good. I hope that'll get him hot and get him rolling."

Nationals bench Ian Desmond again Tuesday night
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Scuffling Nationals third baseman Ian Desmond has been given Tuesday night off against Atlanta. It marks his second benching in the last four games and third in the last 11 after he had started every previous game this season.

Matt Williams has stated that Desmond was benched Tuesday because he didn't get as much of a chance to sit over the weekend.

Desmond has shown signs of emerging from his slump with four hits in his last five games. But he is batting .118 (6-for-51) since June 6.
