Summoned from Syracuse to pitch a must-win game for the Nationals, John Lannan turned in seven strong innings to beat the Braves and salvage a doubleheader split.
Only 13 12 hours removed from a crushing, 11-10 loss, the Nationals took the field for the first half of their day-night doubleheader with the Braves needing a strong performance from starter Edwin Jackson.
Bryce Harper fouled a bunt attempt off his left ankle during the first inning of the Nationals' game today and had to be replaced two innings later.
Only 13 hours after suffering their worst loss of the season, the Nationals are back in action with a doubleheader against the Braves. Mark Zuckerman has live updates on Nats Insider and first pitch is at 1:05!
