GRAPHIC=NATIONALS Last month we took you to the
ENG#=4 Washington Nationals spring training


site in Viero, Florida and today the
new team played its first game of the
preseason against the Mets.

This one knotted up a three-all
in the sixth when Jeffrey Hammonds hit
this grounder to third baseman Miguel
Cairo. He booted the ball and allowed
Jamey Carroll to score the eventual
winning run.

The Nationals added to their lead
in the bottom of the eighth inning,
when Brendan Harris singled to center
field off Mike Matthews to score
Carroll and give the Nationals a 5-to-3
lead.
