Not to be outdone on the mound, Cody Greenhill impressed with a two-inning, five-strikeout performance. Greenhill said he wants to work on pitching out of the stretch with runners on base.
The Nationals’ offensive onslaught began with a two-run double by Mark Vientos in a six-run second inning.
Darren Baker opened the scoring for the Athletics with a two-run single.
