Washington Nationals’ lineup for finale with New York Mets + Luis García & Evan Lee up with team in NY...

The 10-0 loss to the New York Mets last night was bad enough, but Washington Nationals’ shortstop Alcides Escobar also injured his hamstring as he made a diving play and throw from his knees for a force at second base in the bottom of the fourth inning, and the 35-year-old needed help getting off the field. So, call Luis García?

Talking with reporters after last night’s game, manager Davey Martinez said the club might need to get someone on the way to Flushing, Queens, NY in case Escobar isn’t able to play in the series finale with the NL East division leaders this afternoon.
