Minus stars, Nats still show power against Astros
“There were four shortstops out there,” Detwiler said. “I can induce contact and know there’s going to be an out made.”
Craig Stammen, Drew Storen and Collin Balester each worked a scoreless inning for the Nationals.
Morse led off the second with his 13th home run.
“That’s enough for you to not want to pitch to a guy like that,” Figueroa said. “I was cruising along there for a little while and just ran into a rut.”
Espinosa hit his sixth homer, a two-run shot, his second in as many days, in the seventh.
Jeff Keppinger had three hits for Houston, losers of three in a row for the first time since early August.
The Astros scored in the first when Jason Bourgeois led off with a single, stole second and Keppinger doubled.
A single by Keppinger set up Hunter Pence’s infield hit for Houston’s other run in the fifth.
Notes: Pence returned to the lineup after missing two games with a right hip flexor. … Houston OF Michael Bourn missed his fifth game with a strained right oblique. … Keppinger played his 40th consecutive errorless game at 2B. … Atlanta RHP Tim Hudson will pitch against Washington on Friday night. He’s 10-1 with a 1.49 ERA when facing the Nationals.
