Nats’ Jackson has rough outing against Tigers
Nationals right-hander Edwin Jackson had a rough outing during an 11-7 loss to the Tigers on Sunday afternoon.
Jackson lasted four innings, allowing four runs on seven hits, striking out three batters and walking three others. Jackson threw 71 pitches, 41 strikes.
Jackson felt he could have gone back for a fifth inning. Instead, Jackson ended up throwing 10 more pitches in the bullpen.
“The results weren’t really the greatest,” Jackson said. “The only thing I come away with is working on the walks. Everything else I could [deal with]. They had hits, a lot of them on the ground. They had a few hits in the air, but I’ll take my groundballs. I’ll take my chances in keeping the ball on the ground.”
