Only two weeks, the citizens The lineup has established an encouraging trend for late-game feats, often offsetting the club's setbacks. Alas, they can not always rely on their bats to do the work that their relief corps can not. Especially when they have done it once a night.
That's what happened tonight in a 6-3 loss to 10, against the Pirates, which was as discouraging as any other so far this season. The Nationals have lost a brilliant performance of Patrick Corbin. They have wasted Anthony Rendon two circuits, the second of which compensated for the collapse of the eighth round of tonight.
They wereted everything because Matt Grace and Justin Miller, invited to keep the game tied at the top of the 10th, could not do it. Grace gave up the double and was then charged with an error throwing in a play at the caress. Miller then dropped the three-run circuit to Colin Moran, who proved the difference and left a crowd drenched by the rain of 27,084 people dazed by discontent.
It was the fourth time Miller went to a draw of 10 batters after four impressive appearances to start his season. And it was the last black mark on a National Enclosure that is only covered from head to toe in just 12 games in the season.
