The Nats wasted no time jumping all over an eminently hittable Jon Niese, scoring three times in the opening frame, two runs coming on an Adam LaRoche homer. Niese settled in for a while after that point, but his teammates managed to do very little against Doug Fister, who scattered singles while gathering groundouts when he needed them. Niese dispelled any thoughts of a comeback, slim as they might have been, by giving up a three-run bomb to Danny Espinosa in the bottom of the sixth.
Full recap to come.
