NATS Go Down to Mets Again; Taylor & Zimmerman Offense
Ryan Zimmerman (.410) hit his 11th HR today, going 3-for-4 with 3 RBI, and his now batting above .400. Michael Taylor (.192) also had a good day with 3 hits in 5 ABs. Jason Werth (.269) had a nice 2B in the 8th but the NATS could not make it pay off.
SP Stephen Strasburg (3.09 ERA) pitched 7 innings, giving up 3 earned runs on 6 hits, and 1 HR to Michael Conforto. Strasburg had 9 groundouts, 4 flyouts, and struck out 2 (facing 26 batters); he threw 63 strikes out of 94 pitches.
Enny Romero (5.73) and Shawn Kelley (5.40) took care of the 8th and 9th, each giving up one run.
