No offense and no pitching today ended the Diamondbacks pretty much before it could start. They did manage to score a run early, thanks to a David Peralta home run in the first, but that was all for the team today. In fact, they only managed two other hits
The Nationals offense was much more potent. They were quiet for the first two innings, and then they started smacking Dbacks starter Chase Anderson around. The first seven batters in the third reached base, six runs were scored before an out was recorded, and that out wasn't even by Anderson. He was chased after the sixth consecutive hitter reached base, and Eury De La Rose came in with the bases loaded. He gave up a bases-clearing double, but then got three straight outs to end the inning. The Nationals added another two runs in the eighth to make the final score. Full recap to follows shortly.
