The Nationals are down 1-0 to the Mets after three innings here at Nationals Park, and Livan Hernandez is spending quite a bit of time getting himself in and out of trouble already.
Hernandez has thrown 48 pitches through three innings, but has given up four hits and one run to the Mets. He stranded runners on second and third in the second inning. He settled down in the third inning, so we'll see if he's gotten through his hiccups for the night.
The Nationals stranded a runner on second in the third inning, with Nyjer Morgan striking out looking on a close pitch for the second out of the inning. From here, it looked like a ball, and Morgan wasn't too happy with the call.
So we're starting the fourth, with the Nationals down 1-0.
