Journeyman Espino pitches Nationals to sweep of Pirates

WASHINGTON (AP) Paolo Espino got his first major league win at age 34, Josh Bell hit a two-run homer against his former team and the Washington Nationals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 3-1 on Wednesday for a three-game sweep.

Espino (1-2) allowed three hits in five scoreless innings. He struck out two, walked none and threw 39 of his 53 pitches for strikes, a 74% strike rate.

"I didn't know how far they were going to let me go, so I was just focusing on being efficient," Espino said.
