Thru 3: Livan Hernandez and Todd Wellemeyer are trading zeros on a foggy night here in San Francisco. Hernandez gave up a leadoff hit to start the game, but has set down nine straight since then. The Nationals endured a scary moment in the top of the second when Roger Bernadina got drilled on the right knee by a pitch and writhed in pain at home plate for a minute. But he walked it off, went to first and stayed in the game. We're starting the top of the fourth with the game still scoreless.
