"I couldn't have scripted it any better."
(Collin Balester, via Washington Times, 7/2/2008)
Nats 9, Marlins 6: BALESTER + BATS + ('PEN - SHELL - MANNING) = WIN!
First time's the charm for Balester (although we're still trying to figure out how he survived the 5th).
Belliard, Dukes, FLop, brought their Fish-beating sticks to Joe Robbie.
Hell freezes over: Paul LoDuca 2-4; Nationals beat Marlins.
More good news! Zimmerman took some swings.
