Moore to come off Nationals' bench
WASHINGTON -- Manager Davey Johnson announced that outfielder/first baseman Tyler Moore will come off the bench for the Nationals. The skipper wants to give Xavier Nady every chance to get his bat going.

Nady will start in left field against left-handed pitching, while Bryce Harper will start in center. Nady is off to a slow start, going 7-for 54 (.130) with a home run and one RBI.

"Unless somebody has a little injury, I'll probably use [Moore] off the bench," Johnson said. "There are a lot of players ahead of him that need to play. We need to get Nady going. I still have a lot of confidence in him."
