Drew hit second in the order and went 1-for-3. That hit came in the fourth inning against right-hander Matt Wisler. On a 2-2 pitch, Drew went deep over the right-center-field wall to give Washington a 1-0 lead. Three batters later, Jayson Werth added to the lead by hitting Wisler's first pitch for a two-run homer.
"I wasn't trying to do too much," Drew said. "I got a pitch that ran back over. [Wisler] had a really good sinker working. I was fortunate enough to get a ball right there and put a good swing on it. It was good to get on the board.
"And then J-Dub hitting the two-run homer, it kind of eases things a little bit even more so. It was a good night overall."
Drew has been a valuable player off the bench -- so far. He can play all four infield positions and is 2-for-7 this season.
"I know my role here," Drew said. "I'm just trying to prep myself the best I can -- whether it's on the field or hitting. That's my job. I'm trying to get as much information as I can and go out and do it."
