PHOENIX (AP) - A.J. Pollock beat out a run-scoring infield single in the eighth inning and the Arizona Diamondbacks sent Washington manager Davey Johnson into retirement with a loss.
The Diamondbacks scratched out a pair of runs off Ryan Mattheus (0-2) in the eighth to finish the season at 81-81.
David Hernandez (5-6) pitched a perfect eighth and Brad Ziegler closed out the ninth for his 13th save.
Washington failed in the final game of a career by Johnson that spanned six decades, but still finished 11 games above .500 at 86-76. The Nationals won the NL East last season.
