The Washington Nationals started their two game series with the Orioles on Tuesday with a 3-0 win. Washington pitching limited the Birds to just four hits.
Ryan Mountcastle went 2 for 4.
Adley Rutschman went 1 for 4 with a double.
Trey Mancini went 1 for 4.
Tyler Nevin went 0 for 2 with a walk.
Four hits and a walk were just not enough support for starter, Jordan Lyles. Lyles allowed 2 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks, 4 strike outs and a wild pitch thrown over 6.1 innings; a quality start that simply lacked offensive support and put the loss on Lyles ledger.
In contrast, Washington made the most of their six hits and scored three runs. One of the runs coming on a Lane Thomas homerun off Keegan Akin (2.2 IP, 1 HR, 3 K).
