WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Nationals will have to play on without Jayson Werth, but they are a good team, with the best ERA in the majors and a dynamic talent in Bryce Harper and an All-Star third baseman in Ryan Zimmerman, who should be back in their lineup Tuesday. The Nationals took two of three games from the Phillies over the weekend, and they are tied for the best record in the National League.
