WASHINGTON, DC – The Washington Nationals cruised through the first five innings of Sunday night’s game 3 of the National League Division Series, when Anibal Sanchez allowed just one run in a stellar performance against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Then, with a 2-1 lead, the Nationals turned to their bullpen.
Patrick Corbin, one of Washington’s starting pitchers, entered the game in relief and the Dodgers tattooed the left-hander.
With two outs and two runners on, Russell Martin doubled to left-center to give the Dodgers a 3-2 lead. Kike Hernandez added another two-run double and the Nats turned to Wander Suero as they trailed 5-2.
Suero gave up a three-run homer to Justin Turner to give the Dodgers an 8-2 lead in the sixth.
Washington only managed two runs in the bottom of the sixth before going on to lose 10-4.
Game four is Monday at Nationals Park.
