Gio Gonzalez threw seven scoreless innings and homered to start the scoring for the Washington Nationals:
Gonzalez didn’t have his sharpest stuff, but facing the Miami Marlins he can get away with it. Asked how he felt about throwing this evening:
Gio: “It was definitely difficult, especially with this cold weather. It was tough to get a grip. I felt like I was making love to my hand.”

The second run came in the 7th with two-men on and Denard Span at the plate. Span grounded towards the second baseman, nearly hitting pinch runner Roger Bernadina who came to an aburpt stop and collided with the second baseman. A throw to first nearly got Span, but he was safe and the second run was in.
The third run was Bryce Harper scoring from second on Ryan Zimmerman single. Harper’s double was a few feet short of his third homer of the year on the right field wall.

Bad faith, bad effort, bad channel, bad deal.
13th time in MLB history a team has opened the season with back to back shutouts to begin the season. Last team Diamondbacks, 2002.

Denard Span has his first chance to showrange in center. Takes a perfect route, chews up turf, makes a tough play look easy on the track.
