Nationals Vs. Brewers Recap: Nats Win Wild Game In 11th Inning, 11-10

It was anything but an easy getaway day for the Washington Nationals, who finally outlasted the Milwaukee Brewers in an 11th inning marathon, 11-10.

The Nationals jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead when Steve Lombardozzi homered in the top of the first, but by the end of the seventh inning, the Brewers had the lead ballooned to 7-3.

Gio Gonzalez struggled mightily for the Nationals, going just six innings, allowing four runs and walking five batters.

The Nationals fought back, scoring four runs in the top of the eighth to tie the score at 7-7. The Brewers got the lead back at 9-7 going into the ninth inning following a pair of home runs by Norichika Aoki and Carlos Gomez. The Nationals then tied the game at 9-9 in the ninth when Michael Morse hit a two-run dinger.

In the top of the 11th, the Nationals appeared to get control of the game when Morse hit a two-run double. Though the Brewers got a solo home run from Corey Hart in the bottom half of the 11th, it was not enough.
