BY THE NUMBERS

7, 3

Strikeouts, followed by number of hits, for LF Wily Mo Peña

PERSONNEL DEPT.

RF Austin Kearns is 3 for his last 23, dropping his average to .206. He had a two-run single in the ninth last night, but has just one extra-base hit in his last 13 games. He is one of only three Nationals to start every game this year, joining 3B Ryan Zimmerman and SS Cristian Guzmán. . . . RHP Jason Bergmann, demoted to Class AAA Columbus last week, had a rough first outing for the Clippers, lasting just three innings and giving up four runs on six hits and two walks against Durham.

QUOTABLE

" It'll come eventually. Hopefully it'll come within a week or two. But everything today felt good."

Closer Chad Cordero,

on his outing last night
