Nationals' Jefry Rodriguez: Earns win in long relief
Rodriguez (3-2) picked up the win Saturday in Atlanta after throwing 4.2 scoreless relief innings. He struck out one, walked three and did not allow a single hit.
Rodriguez entered in the fourth inning after Jeremy Hellickson suffered a wrist injury and nearly went the distance. He's been shut down from starting in order to manage his workload, but he threw nearly a starter's amount of innings on this occasion. It was perhaps the 25-year-old's best outing of the season, with only his six-inning, two-hit, scoreless start Aug. 26 against the Mets providing real competition.
