WOODBRIDGE, Va. - Chien-Ming Wang threw four strong innings in his first rehab start in 2012 as the Potomac Nationals ended their six-game losing streak with a 4-3 win over the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. Wang threw 49 pitches and allowed one run on four hits while striking out three batters.
Wang came out after a 57 minute rain delay and needed just 16 pitches to toss a scoreless first inning. He struck out one batter and the only player to reach was Odubel Herrera on an error by first baseman Justin Bloxom.
Despite giving up a one-out single to Brett Nicholas, Wang threw only six pitches in the second inning as he got Yefry Castillo to bounce into an inning-ending 1-6-3 double play.
