Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Washington Nationals outfielder Michael Morse left Friday's matchup against the Philadelphia Phillies in the top of the first inning with a right hand injury.
Morse was batting with a runner on second and two outs in the first frame when Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick drilled him in the right hand with a change-up.
Morse was examined by the trainer before heading to the clubhouse to get X- rays.
Roger Bernadina replaced Morse, who is batting .286 with 12 home runs and 45 RBI this season.
