That’s what we call run support, Nationals win 13-2

The middle of the order had a monster night as the Nats slugged their way to 21 hits, 12 runs, and their 27th victory over the Astros last night.

The offense exploded:

C. Guzman 2/5, 1 RBI
N. Johnson 3.6, 1 HR, 2 R, 2 RBI,
J. Willingham 3/5, 2 HR, 3 R, 4 RBI
Adam Dunn 3/4 , 1 HR, 2 R, 2 RBI

It’s funny how when it rains it pours. The Nats went back-to-back-to back in the sixth inning, with Johnson, Willingham, and Dunn all hitting solo shots.

Even Craig Stammen got in on the fun, smacking a double to deep right driving in the run.

Stammen, who in his last start lost an extremely well pitched 1-0 game, pitched well again last night, all be it with much more run support. The righty pitched a nine inning complete game, allowing nine hits, and two earned runs. 

The young twirler earned his second win of his career.
