Drew Stubbs hit a two-out single in the 10th inning Sunday, driving in Jay Bruce and helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the pesky Nationals, 5-4 in Washington.

Bruce sparked the decisive rally with a single off Doug Slaten (2-1). After Laynce Nix singled, Miguel Batista replaced Slaten on the mound and Stubbs connected on another single to right.

Pinch-hitter Scott Rolen gave the Reds a 4-2 lead in the ninth inning with a two-run homer off Matt Capps, one batter after Capps allowed a tying double to pinch hitter Jonny Gomes.

Washington tied it against Reds closer Francisco Coredero (2-3) in the bottom half on pinch-hitter Michael Morse’s two-run double. It was Cordero’s fourth blown save in 20 tries.

With Milwaukee beating St. Louis in the Sunday Night baseball game on ESPN 4-3 IN 10 innings, the two teams are tied for first place in the NL Central again.

Washington Nationals look to improve in 2010

Everytime the Washington Nationals took the field in 2009, the opposition knew not to believe the record because they weren’t as bad a team as it seemed. Two things everybody knew was that Washington can score runs and they can hit homer runs. They were the number 5 offense in the National League.

Led by Ryan Zimmerman, Adam Dunn, Elijah Dukes, this trio is as good as any middle of the order hitters in baseball. But on the other hand, each team knew that the Nationals didn’t have any pitching so it was a slugfest all game.

To improve for 2010, general manager Mike Rizzo knew it was very simple, bring in pitching depth.

The Nationals have brought in RHP Tyler Walker, RHP Miguel Batista, LHP Chuck James, RHP Matt Capps, right-handed setup reliever Brian Bruney, LHP Eddie Guardado and LHP Doug Slaten.

They also added another power-hitting outfielder/first baseman Chris Duncan, who ran out his welcome in St. Louis because he strikeouts alot and is a liability on defense.
