Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond had been sporting a very noticeable goatee in recent days. But at some point between the first and third innings in Washington's game against Philadelphia on Tuesday, he found time to shave it off.

Desmond hit into a double play in his first plate appearance, so perhaps his quick shave was intended to reverse his luck. Desmond was asked about it after the game.

Desmond ended up going 1-for-4 as the Nats lost 4-2.
