Nationals Win; but Cardinals Take Game 2
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Lance Berkman had three hits and two RBIs and the St. Louis Cardinals got four innings of one-hit relief in a 5-3 victory over the Washington Nationals, giving them a doubleheader split Wednesday night.

Laynce Nix homered and drove in two runs in Game 1 for the Nationals, who chased Jake Westbrook with a six-run third inning in an 8-6 victory.

Jaime Garcia (3-0) allowed one earned run in five-plus innings and Colby Rasmus got his fourth RBI of the day as St. Louis snapped Washington's four-game losing streak in the nightcap. Reserve third baseman Daniel Descalso had three nice defensive plays.

Jason Motte and rookie Eduardo Sanchez combined for nine straight outs and stand-in closer Mitchell Boggs earned his first career save.
