Johnson looking for offensive improvement
ATLANTA -- With the Nationals in their final month of the season, manager Davey Johnson would like to see improvement on offense. Entering Thursday's action, the Nationals ranked 27th in offense and second in strikeouts among all big league clubs.

"Swing the bats better. We have showed signs of it, but I want us to stay aggressive, attack, go after guys," Johnson said. "I see signs of it. I have some young guys who are in their first full year in the big leagues, so I have patience on that.

"They should be feeling good enough now to start expressing their talent. I'm not talking about hitting home runs. I'm talking about hitting line drives, not striking out. We strike out too much."
