Roger Bernadina had a coming out party against the Mets. You could say he was the difference in the Nats 6-4 victory over the Mets yesterday. He had two homers which one was a a game winner. He also had a defensive gem that saved the Nats a couple of runs! The Nats are currently 19-15 and are in second place of the NL East.
Craig Stammen was not on his A game but he kept his team in the ball game by pitching 5 innings while giving up 4 runs. The bullpen for the Nats was great! Sean Burnett, Tyler Walker, Tyler Clifford and Matt Capps all combined for 4 shut out innings for the Nats. Clifford picked up his league leading seventh win and Capps notched his league leading 14th save.
The Nats scored 6 runs on 11 hits. Bernadina led the Nats with three hits and 3 RBI. Bernadina's homers were not his first two homers of the year, but also the first two of his MLB career. Craig Stammen also showed some "Lumber" as he got two hits and 3 RBI.
