The Nationals played they’re final game in the series against the Cardinals last night trying to get the sweep on them. Unfortunately the Nationals fell to them 1 to 7 with only 8 hits and 1 run. Max Scherzer having a pretty good performance getting 10 people to strike out and letting up 3 out of the 6 runs scored. Glover, Blanton, and Solis let up the other 3. Not an impressive performance for the Nationals offence at all with only 1 run and 8 hits. The key player for the Cardinals was Stephen Piscotty going 3 for 5 hitting in 5 runs with 3 run home run in the 9th inning.
However the night before the Nationals had a pretty impressive performance in the 2nd game of the 3 game series winning over the Cardinals 8 to 3. Gio Gonzales letting up 6 hits and 2 runs in his 7 inning performance. The Cardinals looked like they couldn’t stop the Nats til last night with the Nats winning big the last 2 nights. The key player in the 2nd win over the Cardinals was Danial Murphy going 4 for 5 with 5 runs batted in and scoring 2 runs.
