The Nats followed up their fifteen-strikeout effort with twelve Ks in ten innings to win their home opener against the visiting Cincinnati Reds and run their record to 5-2.  Gio Gonzalez struck out seven Reds in seven innings and ran his HOV-2 count to four.  Craig Stammen earned the win after throwing an HOV-3 in the tenth inning.

First Inning: Gonzalez began the game by striking out Drew Stubbs looking and followed it up by ringing up Joey Votto to earn his first HOV-2.

Third Inning: Zack Cozart swung his way onto K Street to end the third inning.

Fifth Inning: Gonzalez retired his counterpart, Mat Latos, to get out of the fifth inning.

Sixth Inning: Gonzalez added his second HOV-2 of the day by sitting down Cozart and Votto, each for a second time.

Seventh Inning: Ryan Ludwick became the seventh visitor to K Street for the day.

Eighth Inning: Tyler Clippard relieved Gonzalez and tossed an HOV-2 by retiring Chris Heisey and Stubbs.

Tenth Inning: Chris Stammen threw the second HOV-3 of the season by ringing up ex-Nat Willie Harris, Stubbs (for the third time), and Cozart (also for the third time).

  • Stammen tossed the second HOV-3 of the season.
  • Stubbs and Cozart joined Reed Johnson and Jeff Baker as co-leaders on the single-game E-ZPass list by striking out three times each.
  • Strikeouts in the game: 12.
