Worth noting

• With Werth out on Monday, catcher Wilson Ramos got his first start of the season in the cleanup spot and the fifth of his career. Ramos had made 29 of his 33 starts in the No. 8 hole this year.

• Tyler Moore, who has been playing at Triple-A Syracuse, was named the International League Batter of the Week on Monday. Moore went 8-for-26 (.308) last week, but seven of those hits went for extra bases (four doubles, three home runs). The 26-year-old produced 13 RBIs over the six games.

In 21 games since his second demotion of the season, Moore is hitting .378 with five home runs, 25 RBIs and a 1.133 OPS.

• Reliever Drew Storen endured his second consecutive rough outing since his demotion to Syracuse. The right-hander actually started the Chiefs' road game at Rochester on Sunday and gave up two runs on four hits over 1 2/3 innings, although he struck out three.

• Righty Jake Johansen, the Nationals' top pick in June's First-Year Player Draft, picked up his first professional victory on Sunday, for Class A Auburn. The second-round pick held Hudson Valley to one run over five innings and now owns a 1.11 ERA and .164 opponents' batting average over eight outings.
