Nationals earn split with Cardinals with walk-off win

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Denard Span's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Washington Nationals a 3-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday in the finale of a four-game set from Nationals Park.

Danny Espinosa and Jose Lobaton had three hits apiece for Washington and poked back-to-back singles with one away in the home half of the ninth off of Seth Maness (0-1). Nate McLouth then stepped in as a pinch-hitter and drew a walk to load the bags for Span, who fouled off four pitches before plating Espinosa with his lineout to left.

Rafael Soriano (1-0) pitched a perfect top of the ninth to each his first win of the season.

The Nationals were winners despite hitting just 2-for-12 with runners in scoring position and leaving 17 men on base.
