The Washington Nationals got in a bit of a hole early. They gave up a pair of runs in the top of the second inning, capped off by an RBI double from catcher John Buck, and they trailed, as a result, 2-0. But since they have caught up a bit, and after four innings at Nationals Park, they are tied with the visiting Miami Marlins at three.
The Nats' rally of sorts came in the bottom of the third when they added two runs -- a single from Ryan Zimmerman that scored Jordan Zimmerman and then another single from Michael Morse that drove in Bryce Harper.
On the mound for Washington has been Jordan Zimmerman, who has given up two earned runs over four innings, striking out three as well.
