Worth noting

• With Michael Morse at first and Buster Posey behind the plate again, Gregor Blanco got the nod over Tyler Colvin to start in left field for the second consecutive game Wednesday. Manager Bruce Bochy said there isn't much to that; he "could go either way every day" with those two and opted to go with the speedier option because of Washington's strong rotation.

• Bench coach Ron Wotus returned to the Giants for Wednesday night's game. Wotus had missed the last two games attending memorial services for his late father-in-law.
