Ramos back in Nats lineup

ATLANTA - As expected, Wilson Ramos is back in the lineup today as the Nationals open a three-game series against the Braves.

Ramos had missed the Nats’ last two games after suffering a left hamstring injury in Tuesday’s win over the Giants. This marked the third time this season that Ramos has injured his left hamstring, but this issue was lower down in the hamstring than the previous two strains and was not considered nearly as serious.

Taylor Jordan (1-3, 4.14 ERA) takes the ball tonight against Braves left-hander Alex Wood, who is 2-2 with a 2.78 ERA in 20 games (five starts) this season.

Wood has allowed just one earned run over his last two outings. He went six innings and allowed only two hits in both.
