Nats lose a tough one with the tying run on 2nd with 1 out: Postgame

With one out Anthony Rendon doubled to represent the tying run in the 9th. Brad Ausmus walked Bryce Harper with 1st base open in the 9th inning in a 5-4 game to put runners at 2nd and 1st to face Ryan Zimmerman who had hit 2 HRs already in the game, and Zimmerman struck out to make it a 2 out situation with Daniel Murphy coming to bat. Murphy flew out to CF to end the game. The Nats once again had their chances to tie it in the 9th inning, and they could not take advantage.

This game had much drama when the game was tied 3-3 in a test of the new doubleplay rule. The umpires did not reverse the call as the score moved in favor of the Tigers.

Joe Ross the Nats starter had an off-day and took the loss. The series is tied 1-1 with Scherzer and Jordan Zimmermann facing each other tomorrow.
