Worth noting

• Roger Bernadina was scratched from Wednesday's lineup because he couldn't see out of his left eye. He is expected to see an eye doctor Thursday and get it checked out. Steve Lombardozzi replaced Bernadina in left field.

• Chad Tracy had muscle spasms in his back and couldn't take batting practice on Wednesday. He hurt the back while long tossing before the game. He spent most of Wednesday's game in the trainer's room. He started to feel better before he was announced as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning of the Nationals' 6-2 victory. Tracy's injury is not considered serious.

"Something got out of whack. Not sure," Tracy said. "But I was ready to hit [in the eighth inning]. A couple of days of treatment will be fine."
