Nationals Vs. Giants Final Score: Washington Overcomes Early Deficit To Defeat San Francisco 9-4

The Nationals got off to a rocky start when the Giants scored three runs off of starting pitcher Edwin Jackson which included a two-run homer by Pablo Sandoval which gave the Giants an early 3-0 lead. Jackson was able to recoup and only allowed one more the rest of the way, and the Nationals offense slowly chipped away to ultimately win 9-4.

The offense started going for the Nationals in the third inning when they scored three runs to tie the game. Ryan Zimmerman put the Nationals on the board first with a RBI double which was nearly a home run, and then Ian Desmond tied the game on a two-RBI single to center field.

The Nationals were able to put up six more runs throughout the rest of the game, and all of the following runs came off of a home run. In total there were four home runs by the Nationals which were hit by Zimmerman, Michael Morse, Jhonatan Solano and Rick Ankiel.

It was Zimmerman who led the way for the Nationals by going 2-for-5, two runs and three RBI.
