Ollie a winner in return to game action


Oliver Perez, in his first official game since signing with the Nationals, earned the win for Double-A Harrisburg in Game 1 of a doubleheader Thursday. Perez limited New Britain to an unearned run on one hit -- a triple -- while striking out three and walking two in five innings.

Perez's velocity was no better than with the Mets in spring training, according to the Harrisburg broadcast.
