The Nationals were without star third baseman Ryan Zimmerman for Tuesday's game against the Miami Marlins. And so, for the second game in a row, Washington manager Matt Williams switched second baseman Anthony Rendon to third base in Zimmerman's place and he contributed all over the field in a crisp 5-0 victory at Nationals Park.
After a long drive went just foul, Giancarlo Stanton was determined to at least swing hard.
The benches emptied, and Gomez was ejected for shoving Johnson, a reserve outfielder. Freddie Freeman and reserve catcher Gerald Laird were also ejected.
The Atlanta Braves boosted their rotation and added a right-handed bat to their bench Monday night by acquiring lefty Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson from the Chicago Cubs.
Catcher Koyie Hill and the Chicago Cubs have agreed to an $850,000, one-year contract, avoiding arbitration.
"Those streaks are tough, especially when you're closing in on 30 games," said former Dodger teammate Reed Johnson, who hit in a career-best 20 straight in 2003 with Toronto. "For some reason, that just sounds like a big number. So once you get to 30, then you're really doing something."
"It's always refreshing to see a guy who puts in all that work and does everything the right way, as far as preparing himself for a game, to get rewarded and have that kind of success," said Johnson, now with the Cubs. "Andre just doesn't get out of his plan or what he wants to do at the plate, no matter what the situation is."
