Nationals' Matt Wieters: Collects first two spring hits

Wieters went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

The hits were his first of the spring in nine at-bats. Houston also challenged his arm on the basepaths, and Wieters mostly rose to the challenge, throwing out two of four would-be thieves. With 15 games left on the Nats' spring training schedule, expect the 30-year-old catcher to see plenty of action in an effort to shake off any lingering rust resulting from his late signing.
