    Tom Gorzelanny allowed only three hits in eight sharp innings against a struggling San Francisco lineup, and Michael Morse and Jerry Hairston Jr. drove in runs for Washington, helping the Nationals beat the Giants 2-0 Monday on Military Appreciation Night.

    Gorzelanny (1-2) hadn’t lasted eight innings in a game since Aug. 12, 2007, when he threw a shutout for the Pittsburgh Pirates against the Giants.

    On Monday, he gave up Aaron Rowand’s double leading off the game and single in the third, as well as Cody Ross’ single in the eighth. Drew Storen pitched the ninth for his sixth save in six chances.

    Madison Bumgarner (0-5) retired Washington’s first 12 batters but wound up giving up two runs and five hits in seven innings.
