Nationals 8, Brewers 2

The Washington Nationals won their 6th straight game on Thursday night, defeating the Milwaukee Brewers 8-2 behind their 6th straight 5+ run game.  Adam LaRoche homered in his 3rd straight game and Edwin Jackson pitched 7 shutout innings.

In the 2nd inning, LaRoche hit his homer and Steve Lombardozzi hit a bases loaded triple to give the Nats the 4-0 lead.  That lead was more than enough for Edwin Jackson who gave up 8 hits and struck out 4 while blanking the Brew Crew.

The Nats lost the shutout bid in the 8th inning because of...guess who...Henry Rodriguez.  Rodriguez almost took of Rickie Weeks head, hitting him in the back, and then gave up a 2-run homer to the next batter.  He has now given up 4 runs in his last 3 games while getting just 3 outs.

3 more vs the Brewers...
