Cardinals can’t hold on for win over playoff first-timers
Rookies in the postseason, the Washington Nationals played like poised veterans with a 3-2 victory over the Cardinals on Sunday in St. Louis.
The Nationals escaped a bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, pinch hitter Tyler Moore blooped a two-out, two-run single in the eighth and Washington beat the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Sunday in an NL playoff opener.
The Nationals, who had never come close to making the playoffs since moving from Montreal for the 2005 season, overcame a wild start by 21-game winner Gio Gonzalez, who walked seven.
