Washington Nationals third baseman Jerry Hairston Jr. smoked a left field solo homerun in the second-inning, but starter Livan Hernandez ran into trouble in the fourth-inning, allowing the Brewers to lock the score of the second game of a doubleheader, 1-1.
In the fourth inning, Hernandez gave up a two-out double to Prince Fielder. The Brewers were then able to smack back-to-back singles to bring Fielder in to tie the score. Through the first four innings, the Nationals weren't able to get anything going, aside from the Hairston Jr. home run. Brewers pitcher Marco Estrada held down the D.C. offense, only allowing two runners with 6 K's.
The Nationals lineup is a little less intimidating due to right fielder Jayson Werth being given the game off, although there is always a possibility of him appearing in the pinch hitter role. The only Nats hits so far have come Hairston Jr.'s solo shot and a Rick Ankiel double in the first-inning.
