Tight battle vs. Nats ends in loss for Cards
AP
(MLB.com) With a pair of solo homers and a go-ahead RBI double off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth, Ryan Zimmerman helped the Nationals salvage a win during their three-game visit to Busch Stadium. Washington's 4-3 victory halted the Cardinals' winning streak at four games.

Zimmerman, who homered in each of the first two games of the series, took fill-in starter Tyler Lyons deep with solo shots in the fourth and sixth. Jayson Werth preceded those blasts with one of his own, a solo homer in the third inning that erased the Cardinals' early lead.

After twice battling back to tie the score, the Cardinals opted to pitch to Zimmerman with a runner on second and one out in the eighth. Zimmerman made them pay with the run-scoring double off Broxton, who has been scored upon in his last two outings.

Pitching in his hometown, Max Scherzer was in line for his 12th win until the Nationals' bullpen lost a lead for a third straight night. Both Scherzer and Lyons, who was a ...     [ More ]
