Baker resting Murphy as Nationals end series with Padres

(TSX / STATS) -- SAN DIEGO -- Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker looks at Sunday's four-game series finale with the San Diego Padres with an eye toward the future.

Washington is running away with the National League East and is making plans for October. Baker is doing just that by resting second baseman Daniel Murphy for the second consecutive day.

"I just thought it would be better," Baker said. "I could see him, he wasn't moving real smoothly the last couple of days. Although he kind of waddles, anyway."
