Edwin Jackson tossed the first complete game of the young season and earned his first win.  The Nats ran their record to 7-2 and won their third straight series.  Jackson sent nine more batters down K Street.  Just another day in Nats Town.

Third Inning: Jackson sent his counterpart, Homer Bailey, and ex-Nat Willie Harris down K Street to get his first HOV-2 of the night.

Sixth Inning: Apparently Bailey didn’t get to enjoy the view quite enough because he decided to stroll down K Street on his very next at-bat.

Seventh Inning: Jackson struck out Jay Bruce and Wilson Valdez to end the seventh and earn his second HOV-2.

Eighth Inning: Jackson outdid himself and became the first starter to record an HOV-3 when he fanned Drew Stubbs, Devin Mesoraco, and Scott Rolen

Ninth Inning: Jackson capped off his night of Ks by getting Zack Cozart to swing and miss in the ninth.

  • Jackson recorded the first HOV-3 for a starter.
  • Jackson recorded the first complete game for a starter.
  • Strikeouts in the game: 9.
  • Strikeouts in the 2012 season: 88.
