Starters on left side of infield out Wednesday for Nationals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Nationals lineup Wednesday against Atlanta is sans shortstop Ian Desmond and third baseman Anthony Rendon.

The former is out with back tightness that forced him out of the game Tuesday. The latter is simply getting a day off with Kevin Frandsen playing third instead.
