Nate McLouth OF WAS 2 Months

Nate McLouth went 4-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a two-run double in Wednesday's 10-inning loss to the Marlins.

It was a night of missed opportunities for the Nationals, who banged out 15 hits and drew five walks. They were never able to push McLouth across home plate. It was a nice display of offense from McLouth, who had been struggling offensively entering the night. He pushes his slash line up to .182/.321/.261 on the season.

Nate McLouth is not in the Nationals' lineup Tuesday after re-opening the scab on his right hand during Monday's batting practice and game.

He's available off the bench. The injury has been poor timing for McLouth, as he was slated to play regularly against righties with Bryce Harper (thumb). Of course, he's hitting only .091/.254/.164 this season, so the Nats probably haven't missed much in the week he's been out.

Nate McLouth returned to the starting lineup on Saturday, but went 0-for-3 against the A's.

It was McLouth's first start since he sliced open his hand making a terrific catch against the wall five days ago. Unfortunately, McLouth is still slumping offensively; he's just 4-for-50 this season and he's without a hit since April 27. The Nationals need more from him with Bryce Harper and now Adam LaRoche out.
