    Sep 16, 2011, 11:44 PM EDT

    Michael Morse found himself Friday night in an unusual place: sitting on the Nationals’ bench. Then again, he also found himself in an unusual situation: slumping at the plate.

    Sep 13, 2011, 7:27 PM EDT

    File photo by Mark Zuckerman / NATS INSIDER Chien-Ming Wang faces Dillon Gee tonight at Citi Field. It's no secret what Chien-Ming Wang's biggest bugaboo has been this season: The first inning. For whatever reason, the right-hander hasn't been able to consistently navigate his way through that opening frame without suffering some kind of damage.…
