The Nationals and Astros fought to a 5 to 5 tie yesterday, each team managing one run off the other team’s starter.
Max Scherzer went three innings for the Nats, getting five strikeouts. Meanwhile, up-and-coming Astros prospect, Christian Javier, facing something like a starting day lineup, pitched two innings, fanning four Nats, but allowing a solo homer to Adam Eaton.
The Nats ended with 10 hits, the Astros only six.
Today the Stros take on the Marlins. Zack Greinke gets his Spring debut.
