Bernadina has impressive game vs. Marlins
Nationals outfielder Roger Bernadina showed how much he wants to be an everyday player.
During Washington’s 8-4 victory over the Marlins on Wednesday, Bernadina started in center field and went 2-for-4, including a three-run homer off right-hander Josh Johnson in the second inning. However, his most impressive hit came two innings later, when he bunted the ball past pitcher Mike Dunn for a base it.
The Nationals want Bernadina to bunt more often. After all, he has the speed to do it on a regular basis.
“That is something I want to work on during Spring Training. Today, it worked out well. I just want to keep working on it to get better,” Bernadina said.
Last year, Bernadina played nearly a full season in the big leagues and hit .247 with 11 home runs and 47 RBIs for Washington.
