Nationals' Bryce Harper: Posts three hits in Friday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harper went 3-for-6 with a double in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

The slugger's multihit effort was his first since Sep. 6, a testament to how lackluster his month has been at the plate overall. Harper has slashed .203/.333/.297 over 64 September at-bats with only one homer and seven RBI, following an August where he managed a stellar .310/.398/.536 line and drove in 19 runs.

Nationals' Danny Espinosa: Blasts two-run homer in Friday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Espinosa went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a walk in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

His 423-foot shot in the second drove in Ryan Zimmerman, making it a 3-0 Nationals lead at the time. Espinosa has driven in six runs over his last four games, but is only slashing .131/.206/.295 overall in September. However, his power numbers have seen a resurgence in a season in which he's played his highest number of games since 2012, with his 23 round-trippers and 69 RBI both serving as career highs.

Nationals' Gio Gonzalez: Goes only five innings in Friday no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gonzalez didn't factor into the decision against the Pirates on Friday, giving up three earned runs on five hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out five.

The veteran southpaw wasn't his sharpest Friday, and has now pitched five innings or less in three of his last four starts, with his only strong effort over that span coming against a Phillies squad that's been hopeless against lefties all season. The 31-year-old will look to wrap up the regular season with his 12th win when he takes on the D-backs next Wednesday.

Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Shut down with glute strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murphy has been diagnosed with a mild glute strain and will be shut down for a few days, the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes reports.

It was clear that something was up with Murphy, who had not been responding to treatment on what was thought to be a leg injury. An MRI revealed the glute strain, and he seems likely to miss this weekend's series against the Pirates. Stephen Drew is starting at second base and hitting sixth Friday.

Nationals' Daniel Murphy: Out for Friday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Murphy (leg) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Pirates, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

Murphy was able to pinch hit in two of the past four games, but it seems that the Nationals are still being cautious with the Adl-Star second baseman. It's unclear if his ailment has improved at all with the off day Thursday, but Stephen Drew will fill in for Murphy once again Friday.
