Nada Through Two
Cristian Guzman just made a two-year, $16-million play at shortstop, going to his backhand side to snare a hard-hit grounder from Omar Infante and begin a nice 6-4-3 double play, with Anderson Hernandez in the pivot. Hernandez is smooth at turning those babies. That served to eliminate Casey Kotchman, who had the game's first hit.
And, right after that, an even better play. Martin Prado had what looked to be the second hit of the day, to right field. But Austin Kearns was playing shallow and charged the ball, and his gun to first -- to a stretched-out Nick Johnson -- made for the first 9-3 putout of the spring.
Josh Willingham reached on a walk in the Nats' half of the second. Otherwise, nothing doing against Jair Jurrjens.
