Cleveland, OH -- Nats 2B Adam Kennedy made a bad throw to second base and Cristian Guzman in the bottom of the 1st inning for his 2nd error of the series and 8th error of the season in 58 games.
The Indians scored a batter later on a sacrifice fly to take the lead 1-0 in the 1st.
Jim Riggleman had said before the game he wanted to get Willie Harris and Kennedy at-bats so they can remain consistent in the field. Ian Desmond gets the the night off, but available for pinch hitting and defense.
Pudge gets night off. Riggleman wants to give him a break every 3-4 games. Rodriguez will catch Stephen Strasburg tomorrow. Riggs also said he will give Wil Nieves a chance to catch Strasburg some time too.
Nieves told me when he caught Strasburg in spring training he gave up no hits.
