• Nationals spring comeback behind three-run seventh

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jun 19, 2014
    The Nationals were behind, 5-3, before they took the lead in the seventh inning. There was good news all around Wednesday night at Nationals Park, the best of which came in the Nationals' 6-5 comeback victory against the Astros that completed a two-game sweep. Lefthander Darin Downs, who gave up a single to the only batter he faced in the Nationals’ three-run seventh inning, was tagged with the loss after Kyle Farnsworth couldn’t escape the mess he inherited with two runners on base. Now the Astros head to St. Zeid was on the mound when the Nationals made it close in the sixth inning. "We got some big hits late and came from behind there after a big inning for them." Bo Porter’s club appears much closer to respectability than they have been in at least half a decade, but plenty of holes remain to be filled for a team that had the worst record in baseball the previous three seasons.
