MLB Game Summary - Texas at Washington



(Saturday, May 31st)

Final Score: Washington 10, Texas 2

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Doug Fister tossed six solid innings and the Washington Nationals hit four home runs in a 10-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.

Anthony Rendon, Scott Hairston, Adam LaRoche and Jose Lobaton homered for the Nationals, who have won the first two contests of this three-game series by a combined score of 19-4. Rendon went 4-for-5 with three runs scored.

"This was huge to build off of, to know that we can go out there and get more than five or six hits a game and just keep pouring it on," LaRoche said. "That's what the really good teams do."

Fister (3-1) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out six to win his third straight start.

Mitch Moreland and Rougned Odor each knocked in a run for the Rangers, who saw starter Nick Tepesch (2-1) give up five runs -- four earned -- on seven hits over two innings.

"Didn't really help myself out is the best way to put it," Tepesch said. "Falling behind, and you're not going to win games falling behind and letting pitches leak back over the middle."

Rendon got Washington's offense going with a solo homer to left in the first inning.

The Nationals tacked on four more runs in the second. Danny Espinosa doubled to left-center field and crossed the plate on Lobaton's home run to right- center field. With two outs, Denard Span singled to right-center field and Rendon reached base on an infield single. Both runners scored on Jayson Werth's double to left that resulted in a Shin-Soo Choo fielding error.

LaRoche's three-run homer in the fourth made it an 8-0 game.

Texas finally got on the board in the fifth. Alex Rios walked, moved to second on Leonys Martin's groundout and raced home on Odor's bloop double to right.

The Rangers got another run back in the sixth when Choo scored on Moreland's single to right-center field. Choo reached base on a double.

But the Nationals hit another homer in the bottom half of the sixth. Rendon singled and scored on pinch-hitter Hairston's homer inside the left-field foul pole. It was Hairston's first homer of the season.

Game Notes

Texas' Scott Baker allowed five runs on five hits over five innings of relief ... Washington had 12 hits ... The Rangers are now 6-4 on an 11-game road trip ... Tepesch had won two straight decisions.
