Nats 3, Reds 2: Thank you, Brandon Phillips! (nice slide, Alberto Gonzalez!)
Now there's something you don't see every day! For once, it's the team in the other dugout f##king up to blow the game.
Another good start for Lannan. Julian Tavarez is a winner. Joe Beimel is a savior.
Where'd Beimel find that beard?
Anonymous sources report that several Nats runners are still stranded on base at this hour. Hope they make the flight to St. Pete.
That's 14 LOB today, folks. Not surprisingly, Manny seems unfazed by the offensive slumber.
Full disclosure: We voluntarily switched over to C-SPAN after Kearns struck out to end the 7th with 2 out and Zimmerman & Willingham aboard. Fortunately when we switched back in the 9th, MASN2 hadn't morphed into C-SPAN2 (again).
Pick one. The most likely event to happen next:
a) Manny Acta, fired.
b) Austin Kearns, DFA.
c) Natinals win 20th game.
d) All of the above.
e) None of the above.
