4.1.13 – Nationals 2, Marlins 0

Stat of the Game: Bryce Harper homered in each of his first two plate appearances of the season to provide all of the game’s scoring. He became the youngest player ever to homer twice in his team’s first game of the season.

Under-the-Radar Performance: It’s hard to imagine this actually went under the radar, but Stephen Strasburg retired 19 batters in a row following a leadoff single to start the game. In the end, he twirled 7.0 scoreless innings, allowing only three hits along the way.

It Was Over When: The game wasn’t really over until it was over, when Rafael Soriano locked up Giancarlo Stanton looking on a called strike three to earn his first save as a Washington National.
