Houston, TX (Sports Network) - Danny Espinosa's RBI single in the top of the
12th inning and a game-saving grab by Roger Bernadina in the bottom half was
the difference as Washington claimed a 3-2 win over Houston in the second
edition of a four-game set.
Espinosa drove in Michael Morse -- who extended his hit streak to a career-
best 16 games -- to give the visitors the lead, then Bernadina crashed into
the padding along the wall in left center to rob Brett Wallace of a potential
game-winning extra-base hit.
That catch made a winner of Drew Storen (1-0) who recorded the final two outs
in the 11th, and assured Tyler Clippard of his 23rd save.
Espinosa added a two-run homer for the Nationals, who have won the first two
in the series and six of seven overall.
