The Nationals had a nice comeback win from a 1-0 deficit to win 3-1 with a 2-run home run from Adam Lind and a solo home run from Brian Goodwin to back a 7 inning gem from Edwin Jackson along with bullpen perfection from Ryan Madson and Sean Doolittle.
Rockies starting pitcher Jon Gray had a perfect game going into the 5th inning, and he unraveled quickly. It could have been worse for Gray.
Edwin Jackson was victimized by a 2-out walk to the opposing pitcher that led to the Rockies only run, and Jackson got better as the game progressed. He was at a 70 pitch count through just the 4th inning but righted himself in the 6th and 7th innings allowing Madson to pitch the 8th for his 4th Nat’s hold and Doolittle for the 9th for his best outing for the Nats and his 3rd save.
