Nationals Vs. Brewers: Washington Struggles At The Plate In 6-0 Loss

The Washington Nationals struggled to hit on Friday night. Collecting just four singles, the Nats were blanked by the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in a 6-0 loss, snapping their six-game winning streak that extended for nearly a week.

Washington starting pitcher Ross Detwiler did keep the Nats close early, pitching a scoreless first three innings, but the left-hander would begin to unravel in the fourth inning, giving up a two-run home run to Corey Hart, and then in the fifth, a pair of RBI singles to Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun. He would leave as a result.

No player on Washington had more than one hit.

The Nats took the first game of the series Thursday, 8-2. Game three is slated for Saturday at 7:10 p.m. EST.
