Nationals Take Nail-Biter Over Pirates
The Nationals faced a stiff challenge from Pittsburgh pitcher Sean Baker, but persevered to claim a win at Nationals Park. The final score was 1-0. Baker went 8 innings and allowed no earned runs. The winner was Washington reliever Jefry Rodriguez, now 1-0. The loser was Juan Mejía. The Pirates drop to 11-19 and continue their inconsistent start to the 2026 season.

The Nationals got a big at-bat from second baseman Avilasa Emankum. For the game, Emankum was 1 for 5. In the bottom of the 11th, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a run-scoring single. His 27th hit of the season gave Washington a 1-0 lead.

In postgame remarks, Emankum simply said: "Here's to a great win!"
