The ballpark was a hive of activity last night, despite the freezing conditions. First, Chris Twigg of Severna Park, Md., gave his best Jimmy Hendrix impersonation by playing the national anthem on his electric guitar.

Washington Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell threw out last night’s ceremonial first pitch. When Campbell was introduced, he drew louder cheers than the Nationals.

Campbell’s pitch was out of the strike zone — high and inside — to outfielder Chris Snelling. As he walked through the stands, the young quarterback was mobbed by autograph seekers. Campbell was wearing a Nationals’ home jersey with his No. 17.


20 Runners the Nationals have left on base the past two games, not including last night.

0 Runs the Nationals have scored in the first three innings of every game so far this season.


Diamondbacks’ RHP Livan Hernandez (0-0, 2.57 ERA) vs. Nationals’ RHP Shawn Hill (0-1, 3.60), 1:35 p.m., MASN2, AM-1500, FM-107.7.
