Ramos will get day off Thursday
Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos will be given the day off on Thursday after hurting his left leg in a 7-5 victory over the Phillies on Wednesday night at Citizens Bank Park.
Ramos said the leg started to hurt when he was running the bases on an infield single in the fifth inning, but he stayed in the game and went 3-for-3 with a homer and three RBIs.
“I felt good to finish the game,” Ramos said. “Now, I put ice on it. I will get the day off tomorrow, but I will be good for the next day.”
Ramos has been swinging a hot bat, going 25-for72 [.347] with four home runs and 13 RBIs in his last 20 games.
“I know I can hit, but it’s more important how you finish than when you start,” Ramos said.
