Lidge has been dealing with case of vertigo
WASHINGTON -- Nationals manager Davey Johnson didn't know if reliever Brad Lidge would be available for Tuesday's game against the Astros, because he had been dealing with vertigo for about a week.

After doing some head exercises, Lidge told Johnson that he was available to pitch. Lidge ended up saving his second game of the season in a 1-0 victory against Houston.

Lidge is currently splitting the closer's role with Henry Rodriguez in the absence of Drew Storen, who hopes to return by the All-Star break after having bone chips removed from his right elbow last week.
