Astros Vs. Nationals: Houston Can't Find Offense In 1-0 Loss

For the second straight night, the Nationals' pitching staff stifled the Astros at the plate, as Washington won 1-0 on Tuesday night.

The Astros had four hits in the game, as Washington starter Gio Gonzalez gave up just four baserunners over seven scoreless innings, picking up the win. The lone run was scored on a two-out RBI single from Washington's Adam LaRoche. Washington had just one at-bat with a runner in scoring position, and LaRoche brought the run home. The Astros went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position.

Jed Lowrie was the only Astro to reach base multiple times, going 1-for-3 with a double and walk. The Astros couldn't give any support for starter Wandy Rodirguez, who gave up one earned run over seven innings. The Astros have now lost six of seven games after a 3-1 start to the season.
