Hill solid in Nats loss
Diamondbacks 3, Nationals 1
Shawn Hill struggled in the first, but was solid over the next 5 2/3 innings. (Lawrence Jackson/AP)
The Nationals' first-inning woes continued Sunday, as an error contributed to two Arizona runs. Shawn Hill gave up two runs over 6 2/3 innings of work, while notching two strikeouts. It was another tough day for Washington at the plate as well, as a former teammate, Livan Hernandez, held the Nats hitless for 5 2/3 innings.
