E-Jax Falls to Mets.

DC Sports Nexus ---- Saturday, August 18, 2012

Nationals 0, Mets 2

That title is a bit misleading.  Sure Edwin Jackson took a lost tonight 0-2 at the hands of the New York Mets.  Sure, the only two runs the Mets recorded on the night came off of Jackson pitches.  However, it should not be over looked that E-jax went 7 strong innings, striking out 11 batters while surrendering those 2 runs.

Jackson pitched well enough to win, or at the very least get a no decision.  The two runs he surrendered came at the very end of his night, in the 7th inning.  It just so happened the Nats couldn't get anything going at the plate.  Espinosa recorded 2 hits, and there were a handful of other guys with 1 hit.

Hopefully the offense shows up tomorrow as the Nats try to win the series before squaring off against the Atlanta Braves.
