It Happened Last Night

Nationals 6, Diamondbacks 14

The Diamondbacks jumped on Stephen Strasburg early and often in game two of the three-game series, including a home run from Ender Inciarte and one of two from Mark Trumbo. Nick Ahmed reached base three times. Tuffy Gosewisch had two more RBI. Chris Owings finished the game a home run short of the cycle. Oh, and Rubby De La Rosa pitched seven full innings. He did allow four runs, but the rest he gave the bullpen was much needed.
