Nationals vs. Cardinals: Live Coverage of NLDS Game 2

Pete SchauerCorrespondent IOctober 8, 2012

Nationals 4    Cardinals 12     Final


The Washington Nationals' pitching didn't show up on Monday night, as the team was hammered for 12 runs on 13 hits and made two costly errors in the field.

Cardinals' manager Mike Matheny made a wise pitching swap to begin the third inning that proved to be the difference in Game 2.  Other than back-to-back homers by Zimmerman and LaRoche in the 5th inning, the Nationals' offense was quiet. Bryce Harper struck out four times and had a base running blunder that potentially killed a rally for Washington.
