Well, we finally got our National League pitchers' duel.
After 17 half-innings in Nationals Park, each team has scored precisely one run.
Nationals starter Ross Detwiler wasn't overpowering, but he gave up just that single run, and unearned to boot. Detwiler threw 104 pitches in six innings, which was actually past his usual curfew. In the seventh, Jordan Zimmermann struck out three Cardinals. In the eighth, Tyler Clippard struck out three Cardinals. In the ninth, Drew Storen struck out two Cardinals, then issued a walk to Pete Kozma before getting pinch-hitter Matt Carpenter on a pop fly.
