Nats' Olsen works 2 innings in first spring start

VIERA, Fla. (AP) — Washington's Scott Olsen, making his first start since season-ending shoulder surgery last July, threw two innings in the Nationals' 11-2 loss against a Florida Marlins split squad Monday.

The left-hander, penciled into a rotation spot provided he is healthy, allowed seven hits and three runs. Olsen gave up a three-run home run to Jorge Cantu in the first inning after a bloop single and a broken-bat liner off the glove of third baseman Ryan Zimmerman.

Washington is 0-6 this spring and has been outscored 67-30.

Florida right-hander Ricky Nolasco worked three innings in his first turn against major leaguers this spring, allowing a run on four hits with five strikeouts.

Josh Willingham and Zimmerman homered for the Nationals.

Florida's Ronny Paulino had four hits.
