The Nationals come into St. Louis and win the series taking the first 2 games: Postgame

The Washington Nationals go from a point where they couldn’t hit water from a boat to a point where their RISP efficiency today was a nice 3-6 to secure the 6-1 win.

This is the fist series win in St. Louis in 9 years. Of course, Dusty Baker‘s goal is to sweep this series. The Nationals improve to 16-7 and have confidence as the starting pitching continues to be fantastic and the hitting was timely.

The stars of the game were Joe Ross who went 6 innings giving up 1 run, and his first 4 innings were electric with Werth as the offensive star. Sammy Solis had a very good inning of work and earned a Hold since it was only a 3 run lead at that point and he had to work around an error to do it. Felipe Rivero and Shawn Kelley finished off the game with dominance.

Jayson Werth with the hit of the game hitting a 3 run HR to cap a 4 run 1st inning and later had a Sacrifice Fly. Anthony Rendon with 2 hits, and Daniel Murphy with 2 key hits.

This was a good comment on point from Abqnatsfan as the St. Louis Cardinals defense had 3 errors and also didn’t turn a tailor-made doubleplay on a drop which doesn’t get ruled an error:

“Murphy has been amazing! And the St Louis errors are second in MVP voting for the Nats today!” — Abqnatsfan
