Nationals break through in the 11th to earn a ‘huge’ victory over the Rays

The Nationals’ dugout, the same dugout that had wilted with each bullpen collapse, was then the loudest crevice of the building. It was filled with high-fives for Castro, for Harrison, then for Rainey, who entered for the 11th, walked the leadoff batter and stranded two runners by striking out Austin Meadows, the Rays’ hottest hitter, with a high slider. That was the final pitch of a 4-hour 19-minute slog that, for the Nationals, turned out okay.
