Updates: Nationals vs Tigers
I'll provide periodic updates. ...
9:47: The Nationals lost, 8-2. Matt Capps allowed an RBI double while sheets of rain came down in the ninth for the final margin.
9:17: After Luis Atilano shut out the Tigers in the sixth, Miguel Batista allowed a run in the seventh on a play at the plate that Jim Riggleman came out to argue. Tyler Walker surrendered another run in the eighth on a bloop to center. The Nationals trail, 7-2, with one out in the eighth.
8:40: The Nationals have crept to within 5-2 after five innings. J.D. Martin is done after allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk. He struck out three. After his brutal first inning, Martin settled down and retired 10 of 11 at one point. Nyjer Morgan's hamstring seems to be 100 percent -- he beat out an infield single and stole second base in the fifth.
7:50: J.D. Martin calmed down, allowing two hits but no runs in the second and throwing a hitless third. The Nationals still have just one hit against Jeremy Bonderman, and they still trail, 5-0.
7:35: The Tigers roughed up J.D. Martin in the first inning, scoring five runs on five hits. Martin, in a last-gasp chance to convince Nationals brass he belongs in the rotation, did not acquit himself well. The Nationals went scoreless in the first despite a single by Ryan Zimmerman and they trail, 5-0.
