Nationals Vs. Reds Score: Chris Marrero Earns Two Errors In MLB Debut, Nats Behind 4-2

There are Major League debuts to forget and then there are Major League debuts to forget. Recently called up first baseman Chris Marrero is having one of those nights and unfortunately it has cost him as the Washington Nationals
trail the Reds 4-2.

Marrero has committed two fielding errors in Saturday night's game and both have lead to runs. The first ball hit onto the field to the Nats defense went to Marrero who couldn't get it and watched as it rolled into right field and he was tagged with his first error as a major league ballplayer. Brandon Philips, the beneficiary of Marrero's error would later score in the inning to give the Reds a 1-0 lead. In the third inning Marrero committed his second error, a fielding error which helped the Reds load the bases against Ross Detwiler with no outs. Detwiler gave up two runs in the inning to give the Reds a 4-2 lead.

Detwiler has gone three innings giving up four runs (one earned) on four hits. He has issued one walk and two strikeouts. In the third inning catcher Wilson Ramos and center fielder Jayson Werth both plugged solo home runs to put the Nationals on the board and had them briefly leading the game 2-1.
