On the first actual day of spring, the Nats were shut out by the Mets on five hits for a 2-0 loss in Port St. Lucie.

Stephen Strasburg took the loss but turned a solid five innings of work, allowing a run (home run) on two hits while walking one and striking out three. He threw 85 pitches, 54 for strikes, and was consistently between 93 and 97 according to the beat writers on Twitter.

Steven Lombardozzi got the start at 3B and led off, but was hitless in three at-bats. He had one putout and one assist.

Other minor-leaguers that saw game action:

  • Stephen King went 0-for-1 with a strikeout while subbing at 3B, where he had one assist
  • Josh Johnson went 0-for-1 and had two assists, starting a double play as the 2B
  • David Freitas went 0-for-1 with a strikeout and caught one inning
  • Corey Brown went 0-for-1 while pinch-running and playing CF

The loss drops the Nats record to 5-9 for the 2012 Grapefruit League. They host the Atlanta Braves tomorrow afternoon. John Lannan gets the start, opposed by Tommy Hanson. The game will be broadcast live on MASN.
