"I came in today and my goal was to stop the losing streak. I came in aggressive, do whatever I got to do, keep to the pitching plan, and it worked out." (Shairon Martis, via Chatter, 4/16/2008)
Nats 8, Phillies 2: They won't go 0-162 after all!
Shairon Martis comes up huge. Win #1. Exhale.
Oh, and long balls help, too: Dunn, Willingham, Dukes, Gonzalez go deep.
