"I'm a little frustrated that I didn't make it easier than I did, but we came out with a win, and that's the ultimate goal."

Love the NY Post headline this morning: "Still Nat going very well."
Nats 6, Mets 5: Oh yes, Mike MacDougal tried to give away the game in the 9th, but just couldn't pull it off.
Another solid start by J.D. Martin, and HRs by Zim, Bard, and Ham Solo just enough for a win.
