Worth noting

• The Nationals recalled right-hander Blake Treinen from Triple-A Syracuse on Thursday to fill the extra roster spot created after Walters was traded to the Indians.

• Washington first baseman Adam LaRoche was a late scratch from the lineup Thursday night. Kevin Frandsen started in his place to give LaRoche a breather.
