Updates: Nationals at Cardinals
I'll provide periodic updates. ...
4:10: The Nationals beat the Cardinals, 9-6, in a game in which they pounded 15 hits. Ian Desmond made two errors but smacked three hits. John Lannan threw 59 pitches in five innings, pitching with such efficiency that he threw 15 pitches in the bullpen afterward. He joins Garrett Mock as Nats who are done with spring training games.
2:25: The Nats are having their way with Adam Wainwright. Cristian Guzman poked an RBI triple to right-center, and Ian Desmond drove an RBI double to left. The Nationals have 10 hits and lead 5-2 after scoring three runs in the top of the fifth. Mike Morse has a couple hits today, too.
2:05: The Nationals tied it at two after a two-run third in which Cristian Guzman grounded a double to right and Willie Harris drove in a run with a ground out. They've got five hits off Adam Wainwright. Ian Desmond and Guzman turned a smooth 6-4-3 double play in the third. Good footwork by Guzman.
1:44: The Nationals made a mess of the first inning. John Lannan allowed two unearned runs on one hit and two Nationals errors. One of them was scary. Willie Harris slipped while chasing a fly ball and landed in a heap. He stayed down a while, but remained in the game. They got out of the inning when Cristian Guzman, making his first start at second base, started a 4-6-3 double play.
The Nationals have four hits off Adam Wainright with no outs in the third. Nyjer Morgan reached on an infield single, and there are runners on first and second after he swiped second.
