ROARK STRUGGLES TO DROP 2 OF 3 VERSUS THE PIRATES

SP Tanner Roark (4.73) had a rough night in Pittsburgh giving up 7 earned runs on 8 hits, 2 HR (2-run to Josh Bell in the 1st and a solo shot to John Jaso in the 5th), and 4 walks in 5 innings (114 pitches, 66 strikes).  Roark’s game score was a very low 16 to the Pirates SP Tyler Glasnow’s 46 (the best game score of 2017 is Max Scherzer’s 78 and Gio Gonzalez had the previous low of 32).

Relief:  Blake Treinen (7.71) then faced 3, giving up 1 run, Enny Romero (4.66) gave up 2 runs, and Shawn Kelley (6.57) was able to put up zeroes in the 9th.

The NATS had 2 errors for a second night in a row, both by Daniel Murphy (throw and missed catch).  

Murphy (.320) had a good night otherwise going 2-for-4 with a solo HR.  Adam Lind (.341) and Ryan Zimmerman (.376) both doubled, and Bryce Harper (.365) struck out 3 times.  Anthony Rendon (.270) walked twice and scored 1 run.

NATS totals:  6 Hits, 2 RBI, 4 walks, 11 strikeouts, 16 LOB.

Up next – NATS to Atlanta:  Gio Gonzalez (3-1, 2.47 ERA, 41 K) vs. R.A. Dickey (3-3, 4.22 ERA, 22 K).
