Of note:

  • Ryan Zimmerman’s two-run home run in the 16th inning on Tuesday night, lifting the Nationals over the Brewers, 4-2, was the first extra-innings home run of Zimmerman’s career. The win, which came in the longest game (by innings) in Nationals (2005-present) history, was made possible in large part by a seven-reliever collaboration that lasted 10.0 scoreless innings (10 hits, 5 BB,6 SO).
  • The Nationals’ defense turned three double plays, and individually, Ian Desmond made two dazzling plays in the hole at shortstop while Denard Span made a game-saving catch at the wall in the 14th, and Zimmerman made a diving play in the bottom of the 16th, right after his homer, to keep the Brewers off the bases.
  • Anthony Rendon’s 12th home run of the season, a solo shot in the eighth,tied the score, 2-2, and ultimately sent the game to extra innings.
  • The victory was the Nationals’ season high-tying fourth straight and it snapped a seven-game losing streak in extra innings.
  • In four games since June 21, the Nationals’ bullpen is 1-0 with four holds, four saves and a .077 (4-for-52) batting average against, thanks to 17.2 consecutive scoreless innings.

Of note:

  • Entering Tuesday night’s game, the Washington Nationals’ bullpen has retired a team-record 25 consecutive batters (10 by strikeout) dating to the final two outs of the 13th inning on Friday night vs. the Atlanta Braves. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, this is also the third-longest such streak in the Major Leagues this season. The San Francisco Giants posted 33 straight from June 15-21, and the Braves ran up 28 straight from May 4-7. The Nationals’ previous bullpen mark for consecutive batters retired was 21, May 17-19, 2014.
  • Another one from the Elias Sports Bureau: Tyler Clippard struck out the side in the ninth inning to clinch the Nationals’ 3-0 win over the Brewers, one night after Rafael Soriano earned a save by striking out all three batters he faced in the Nationals’ victory over the Braves. The Nationals are the first team since 1969 (when saves were first officially recorded in the major leagues) to win back-to-back games with two different pitchers earning the save by striking out all three (or more) batters they faced.

8.4.13 – Brewers 8, Nationals 5

Stat of the Game: Jayson Werth tallied his third consecutive multi-hit game, finishing the series 7-for-11.

Under-the-Radar Performance: After hitting just one home run in his previous 19 contests, Adam LaRoche blasted his second longball in as many days to pull into a share of the team lead with 16 on the year.

It Was Over When: After taking the lead in the sixth, the Brewers added single runs in the seventh and eighth to pull away.

Washington Nationals (54-56) vs. Milwaukee Brewers (46-64)

RHP Taylor Jordan (1-3, 3.31) vs. RHP Kyle Lohse (7-7, 3.22) 

The Nationals snapped the Milwaukee’s string of 86 games without being shutout (the longest such stretch in the Major Leagues) with a 3-0 victory Saturday night. The win also gave Washington a 4-2 record against the Brewers so far in 2013 which, combined with a 5-3 mark in 2012, means the Nationals have won consecutive season series at the Brew Crew’s expense for the first time in Nationals history (‘05-present). Taylor Jordan takes the hill in Sunday’s finale looking to guide the Nationals to their first road sweep of the season.

NATIONALS LINEUP:

1. Span CF

2. Harper LF

3. Zimmerman 3B

6. Desmond SS

7. Lombardozzi 2B

DAN THE MAN

Dan Haren turned in seven scoreless frames of four-hit ball to earn his second consecutive victory. In the five starts since his return from the disabled list on July 8, the right-hander has a 2.70 ERA (8 ER/30.0 IP) with just eight walks against 32 strikeouts and a .206 opponents batting average.

JOINING THE CLUB

Adam LaRoche hit his 15th home run of the season, making him the fourth Nationals player to reach the plateau so far this year (Desmond 16, Harper 16, Werth 15). Only two other teams in the National League (Atlanta, Colorado) have four players with 15 or more roundtrippers, while three teams (Miami, San Diego, San Francisco) do not have a single player with at least 15 on the season.

CLIPP N’ SAVE

Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano combined on a scoreless eighth and ninth inning Saturday, leading to Soriano’s 28th save in 32 opportunities this year. Clippard, meanwhile, has not blown a lead all season, and is 3-0 with 11 holds, a 0.70 ERA (2 ER/25.2 IP), a .107 opponents average and 27 strikeouts since the beginning of June.

HAPPY HOMECOMING

Jordan Zimmermann improved to 4-0 in four career starts against his home-state team, holding the Brewers scoreless over six frames. Although they managed four hits and four walks, the Brewers went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Zimmermann has allowed just six runs to Milwaukee in 24.2 innings of work (2.19 ERA), striking out 23 while walking just seven in his career.

A SOLID SPAN

Fresh off his best month of the season in July, during which he batted .289/.349/.402 with his first two home runs, Denard Span opened August with his third multi-hit performance in four games. Span is 9-for-15 (.600) with a walk, a double, a home run, five runs scored and three RBI over that stretch.
