Liriano, Pirates fall to Nationals 5-2
Question of the Day
Liriano (0-5) is winless in 14 consecutive regular-season starts, dating to last Sept. 10 when he won at Texas. He gave up four runs, six hits and four walks in five innings while striking out five.
“I’m not doing my job at all,” Liriano said. “I’m not going deep into games and I’m not keeping the team in the ballgame.”
“I was just missing pitches and not doing my job, I think,” Liriano said. “With men on base, I was trying to overthrow most of the time.”
The Nationals had gone 2 for 27 with runners in scoring position during their skid.
“Base hits with runners in scoring position, that’s how you win ballgames,” Washington manager Matt Williams said.
Desmond got it done twice.
Span and Jayson Werth also had two hits for the Nationals, who scored just seven runs during their skid.
“It’s nice to get some big hits,” Rendon said. “We haven’t had many lately, but we’ve tried to stay on an even keel the best we could and we finally got some clutch hits today.”
