Nats Rebound with a Win

DC Sports Nexus ---- Saturday, July 7, 2012

Rockies 1, Nationals 4

The Nationals rebounded tonight behind a strong performance from Gio to beat the Rockies 4 to 1.  Gio went 6 innings pitching 1 run baseball, while giving up only 3 hits.  Mattheus, Burnett, and Clippard came in and handled the 7th, 8th, and 9th inning without issue and T-clip earned his 14 save of the season.

Washington took an early lead in the 2nd inning on a Desmond solo shot.  Apparently he has been dealing with an oblique strain and will miss the all star game, but he could have fooled me!  Francis pitched decently, but would leave in the 6th innings, an inning where Espinosa, Harper, and Zimmerman all crossed the plate to make the game 4-1.  

Nat's go out to try and win the series tomorrow afternoon.  Oh yeah, some guy by the name of Bryce was added to the all star roster.
