Cardinals Hold Off Nats

A three-run second inning for the Cardinals was keyed by a Tony Cruz two-run single as they held on for a 4-3 win against the Nationals in DC. Lance Lynn moved to 4-and-0 giving up one run and striking out five over five-and-two-thirds innings. Matt Holliday and Lynn drove in the other runs for St. Louis, which has taken two of the first three in the series to jump to 11-and-7. Danny Espinosa hit his first homer of the year in the loss. Jordan Zimmermann was charged with four runs, only one earned, in seven innings seeing his record even up at one. Washington is 10-and-8. Nats manager Matt Williams benched Bryce Harper for not running hard to first during a ground out in the sixth inning.
