Washington Nationals news & notes: Nats & White Sox differences; Joan Adon runs into trouble late in outing + more...

Joan Adon threw 93 pitches to the 26 batters he faced in 4+ innings last week on the road in PNC Park, giving up eight hits, a total of six walks, and four earned runs before he was lifted from what ended up a 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

“He just couldn’t get the ball in the strike zone,” Washington’s manager Davey Martinez said after the abbreviated outing by the Nationals’ 25-year-old righty.

“He fell behind. He kept going back to breaking balls and breaking balls, not really attacking hitters, so we’ll sit down with him in the next couple days, and get him back squared away.
