Nationals Vs. Brewers: Washington Tallies Nine Hits In 8-2 Win

Edwin Jackson finally got the run support.

In his last outing, the Washington Nationals starter allowed just one earned over seven innings but was charged with the loss against Atlanta after the Nats' batters were shut out. Thursday night in Milwaukee proved to be much different. The right-hander would pitch seven scoreless innings as Washington would tally a total of nine hits in an 8-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. Jackson in turn improved to 6-6 on the season.

The Nationals' scoring was scattered over nine innings. They tacked on four in the second inning, coming off a solo home run from Adam LaRoche and a three-run triple from Steve Lambardozzi.

They would later produce a three-run fifth, as well as an RBI-single from Michael Morse in the seventh to build a near-insurmountable eight-run advantage.

Washington faces Milwaukee in the second game of the weekend set on Friday at 8:10 p.m. EST.
