ST. LOUIS — Pinch hitter Tyler Moore blooped a two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning and the Washington Nationals won in their postseason debut, beating the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals in 3-2 Sunday in an NL playoff opener.


The Nationals overcame a wild start by 21-game winner Gio Gonzalez, then watched their bullpen shut down St. Louis in the late innings. Ahead 2-1 in the seventh, the Cardinals didn't score after loading the bases with no outs.


The NL East champion Nationals led the majors with 98 wins this season, and go for a 2-0 series lead Monday when Jordan Zimmermann opposes Jaime Garcia.


The Cardinals made it to the best-of-five division series by beating Atlanta in the wild-card matchup Friday.
