Team Record: 4-2 (3-0)
Offensive Game of the Week: Wilson Ramos 4/6 at Reds – 3-for-4, 2 HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, BB
Pitching Line of the Week: Stephen Strasburg 4/1 vs. Marlins – 7.0 IP, 3 SO, 3 H, 80 pitches (52 strikes)
Dan Haren’s poor debut – It was just one game and a tough situation for anyone to start their season in, away at Cincinnati against their deep lineup. At the same time, however, Haren was awful in his final spring start and is looking to bounce back after a bad year last season with the Angels. There is no reason to rush to judgment yet, but his progress this month could be the biggest storyline revolving around the Nationals.
