Cardinals @ Nationals Recap 4.20: Cardinals lose a game they deserved to lose

Miller's command, Cardinals offense, Cardinals defense all shaky in a loss to the Washington Nationals. They settle for a series split.

About Bryce Harper’s removal

Manager Matt Williams said Bryce Harper’s removal from Saturday’s 4-3 loss to the Cardinals would be forgotten by Sunday afternoon. Sure enough, Harper is back in the lineup and batting second.
