Game Three in Washington

Alejandro De Aza   Morning,

Final game in the series, starts with some bad news over the injury to Gordon Beckham. He has a fractured hamate bone in his left hand and it will require surgery. Reports are that he will be out for 6 weeks and I am not sure when he will move to the DL. Its Alejandro De Aza’s birthday today, so he takes honor spot in the feature photo.

Dylan Axelrod has residence on the pitching mound today. The winds are going to cause some real issues today for both teams. With this wind both pitchers are going to have a long hard night.
