Former Orioles catcher Matt Wieters hit his first home run as a member of the Nationals on Tuesday night.

Wieters’ homer, a solo shot to right field, came in the fourth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals of the Nationals’ 8-3 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Nationals took a 4-2 lead on Wieters' home run. He finished the game 2 for 3.

Earlier in the fourth, Jayson Werth homered to left center. In the fifth inning, Daniel Murphy hit a two-run shot to right field.

Tuesday night’s game was the second of a three-game home series against the Cardinals. The Nationals won 14-6 Monday night. The teams will play again Wednesday.

Wieters, 30, spent the first eight seasons of his MLB career with the Orioles before signing a one-year, $10.5 million deal with the Nationals in February.

During his time with the Orioles, Wieters was a four-time All-Star and a two-time Gold Glove Award winner. He also hit 117 home runs, including 17 last season.
