On June 26, 2011 The Nationals confirm the hiring of Davey Johnson as their new manager, three days after the sudden resignation of Jim Riggleman. Johnson, who last managed in 2000 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, will take over tomorrow against the Angels. Meanwhile, interim manager John McLaren goes out a winner, as the Nats beat the White Sox, 2 – 1, to give him a 2-1 record during his stint as skipper; he is offered a job as a scout within the organization. Rookie 2B Danny Espinosa hits the key homer in the 7th inning while Livan Hernandez is the winner. The 68 year-old former skipper compiled an 1148-888 (.564) record during his 14 years in the dugout with the Mets, Dodgers, Reds, and Orioles, finishing lower than third place on only three occasions.
