WASHINGTON (AP) The Cardinals managed to score twice against Stephen Strasburg while starter Shelby Miller kept the Nationals offense quiet. Nine outs away from taking yet another series from Washington, St. Louis' defense and bullpen couldn't finish the job.
Denard Span hit a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning and Washington, with Bryce Harper back in the lineup and stealing his first base of the season, rallied past the Cardinals 3-2 on Sunday.
The Cardinals gave up two runs in the seventh and the game-winning score in the ninth. They weren't charged with any errors in those innings but failed to record two potential outs.
