CB Adonis Alexander picked by Redskins in sixth round of supplemental draft

The Washington Redskins returned to a familiar spot to try to plug a hole, selecting Virginia Tech corner Adonis Alexander in the sixth round of the supplemental draft.

Alexander becomes the Redskins’ first supplemental pick since they used a third-round choice on defensive lineman Jeremy Jarmon in 2009. He lasted two seasons with Washington before being traded to Denver and subsequently retired at age 24.

The Redskins also drafted nose tackle Tim Settle (fifth round) and corner Greg Stroman (seventh round) from Virginia Tech in April.

Washington waived punter Sam Irwin-Hill in the corresponding roster move.

Catchers are a whole different breed, said rookie Dereck Rodriguez, son of Hall of Famer Ivan cheap nfl jerseys Rodriguez. They get banged up back there and go like it’s nothing.

Rodriguez (4-1) pitched three scoreless innings for the win. He also had three of San Francisco’s 16 strikeouts.

Brandon Belt drew a two-out walk from James Norwood (0-1). Andrew McCutchen then singled to bring up Posey, who ended the 4-hour, 30-minute game with San Francisco’s first run since scoring four in the first.

With two strikes, you’re just kind of in battle mode, Posey said.

Norwood worked the 12th and 13th in his major league debut. He immediately struck out Brandon Crawford on a 99 mph fastball.

Cubs slugger Kris Bryant hit a two-run homer in his return from the disabled list, and All-Star Javier Baez tied the game with a solo homer in the seventh.

Tony Watson’s scoreless streak at home ended at 20 2/3 innings with Baez’s 18th homer — and Watson hadn’t allowed a run in 18 innings overall, which had been the longest active streak in baseball.
