Updates: Cardinals at Nationals
I'll provide periodic updates. ...
3:39: The Nationals won, 7-4. Roger Bernadina provided the final margin with an RBI single in the eighth. After a rough first inning by John Lannan, that was a nice game the Nats played today. They smacked 11 hits, and the bullpen -- led by Jason Bergmann and Brian Bruney -- did not allow a run.
2:51: The Nationals took back the lead when Ivan Rodriguez hammered a deep, two-run home run deep to straightaway center, his first home run this spring. After six, the Nationals lead 5-4.
2:40: John Lannan is done after 5 2/3 innings. He allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks. A departure from his sterling spring. Jason Bergmann,trying to regroup from a rough in Tampa, is the new pitcher.
2:30: John Lannan allowed another run in the fourth after pitcher Adam Wainright doubled to left-center. With one out in the fifth, Willie Harris doubled to right, his third hit of the game. But Wainright struck out Adam Kennedy to end the inning and strand Harris on third.
1:55: The Nationals tied it up against Adam Wainright. Roger Bernadina singled to right and then stole second. John Lannan hit a soft line drive to left to score Bernadina and tie the score. Willie Harris followed with a single, his second hit of the game, but was stranded.
1:32: The Nationals got two runs back in the first. Willie Harris led off with a single, and Cristian Guzman followed by chopping a single over the first baseman's head. Harris scored on a groundout by Ryan Zimmerman while Guzman went to third on an error. Guzman then scored on a grounder into the shift by Adam Dunn. After one, the Nats trail, 3-2.
1:26: After cruising during his first three starts this spring, John Lannan endured a rough first inning. The Cardinals laced three hits and drew two walks, taking a 3-0 lead. Matt Holliday roped an RBI double, Ryan Ludwick hit a sacrifice fly and Nick Stavinoha blooped an RBI single to right.
