"I wanted to stay in the game because I didn't have a lot of pitches. It was the manager's [decision]. I don't know what happened."

"I'm impressed by him. I'm impressed, I'm impressed."

The New Ace shines in first start for Nats. Frank was impressed, but apparently not impressed enough to let him go more than six (70 pitches).
Second-guessing the manager is fun, especially after a win. Nationals 9, Braves 2.
