• Washington said Leonys Martin and Elvis Andrus took it upon themselves to pull off a first-inning hit-and-run on Monday. Martin broke on a 1-1 pitch and Andrus singled through the right side, moving Martin to third. Said Washington, "I love the hit-and-run, but when I put it on, they don't execute it.
