Nats’ Best and Worst on Display in Loss – The Post
For Nats, eight isn’t enough – The Wash. Times
After winning the first two games of the lone 2009 series in Arizona, the Nationals fell to the Diamondbacks 10-8. The visitors hit four home runs, including two from RF Adam Dunn who reminded us all that “he fields with his bat” in early innings. The other two homers were hit by Josh Willingham. 3B Ryan Zimmerman extended his hitting streak to 28 games (nationals.com) as well. The pitching, as can be expected in a 10-8 loss, was poor. Scott Olsen had a poor start, allowing 13 of 25 batters to reach base before leaving after taking a liner off of his ankle. Logan Kensing allowed 5 of 7 batters to reach base and took the loss.
On Saturday, the Nats won 2-1. On Friday, they won 5-4.
