WASHINGTON (AP) Veteran Washington Nationals infielder-outfielder Howie Kendrick tore his right Achilles tendon in the opener of Saturday's doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers and will miss the rest of the season.

Kendrick confirmed the injury while standing on crutches and wearing a walking boot in the Nationals' clubhouse after Washington was swept in the doubleheader. He will have surgery as early as Monday.

"I know I won't be back this year," Kendrick said.
