They also wound up losing the game, 6-2, their second straight loss. They’ll look to split the four-game series at Nationals Park on Sunday.
Locastro singled with one out in the third and then was caught stealing. While sliding headfirst into second, Locastro appeared to jam his left pinkie finger into the base. He got up and signaled to the dugout that he was hurt, and his finger appeared to be pointing off to the side.
The caught-stealing ended Locastro’s Major League-record (since 1951) streak of successful steals to open a career at 29, one more than Hall of Famer Tim Raines, who accomplished the feat from 1979-81.
