Ramos out of Nats lineup (Giants scratch Sandoval)

SAN FRANCISCO - Catcher Wilson Ramos is out of the Nationals lineup one night after leaving Tuesday's game because of right hamstring tightness.

Jose Lobaton is behind the plate and just in case Ramos is completely unavailable, Kevin Frandsen is the Nats' emergency catcher.

Giants right-hander Matt Cain makes his second start off the disabled list and first since holding the Mets hitless through five frames of a seven-inning outing.

Tanner Roark starts for the Nats one outing after striking out 11 in eight scoreless innings in San Diego. He has lasted at least seven innings in three straight starts and has tossed four consecutive quality starts.
