Catcher Brandon Harper scored on a bases-loaded throwing error at the plate by Brewers shortstop Bill Hall that put the Nationals up 3-1. Hall’s throw to backup catcher Mike Rivera was high; Rivera jumped to catch Hall’s throw and was unable to touch the plate before Harper scored.
Speedy center fielder Nook Logan, who had bunted for a base hit, moved to third with Alfonso Soriano on second and Bernie Castro on first. Lopez singled to right field, clearing the bases.
“I knew [Castro] had a big lead, and that was the key,” Lopez said. “He went right when the ball was hit.”
