Anthony Rendon hit a two-run homer in the first inning Monday night, and — thanks to an odd-moving storm that produced an interminable rain delay — the Washington Nationals didn't finish off the Los Angeles Dodgers until some six hours later on Tuesday morning, holding on for a 4-0 victory and gaining sole possession of first place in the NL East.
As it was, Aaron Barrett got the win, Zack Greinke (5-1) got a hard-luck first loss of the season and Danny Espinosa added a two-run homer in the eighth.
