Nationals 1, Dodgers 0: Last time out, Scott Olsen got smoked. Sunday, Olsen was just smokin'.
Olsen's line: 7 IP, 0 R, 6 H, 1 BB, 8 K. 99 pitches, 71 strikes.
Clippard in the 8th, Capps in the 9th (with a little help from Maxwell). Bang, Zoom.
And just like that, the Nats take the series from LA 2-1: back above .500.
