Nats allow 10 runs in first inning
A day after right-hander Livan Hernandez pitched a shutout, the Nationals found themselves behind, 10-0, after one-half inning against the Brewers on Sunday afternoon.
Washington right-hander Jason Marquis faced seven hitters and didn’t record an out as he gave up seven runs on four hits.
Marquis became the first starter in Nationals history to not record an out in a game.
Reliever Miguel Batista didn’t fare any better as he gave up a grand slam to Craig Counsell to give the Brewers a 10-0 lead. It was Counsell’s third career grand slam.
