Worth noting

• Drew Storen remains on track for a return around the All-Star break. Storen, who underwent surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow on April 11, is throwing at 85 percent to 90 percent effort in his bullpen sessions.

• Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman entered Thursday's series finale needing just six hits to reach 1,000 for his career, but he was mired in a 4-for-36 slump.

• Manager Davey Johnson said that Chien-Ming Wang, who was moved from the rotation to the bullpen on Wednesday, had a good throwing session on Thursday. The Nats are trying to work on some mechanical issues that are giving Wang problems with command and location.
