Giants 5, Nationals 4: This one felt sort of like getting mauled by a bear. Or so Tyler Walker would have you believe:
"It's bear hunting. Sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you. Too bad we were on the bad end of it today."
(Tyler Walker, via Nats Insider, 5/27/2010)
The bear got 'em today. By the way, that's the best quote by a Nationals player since Julian Tavarez compared the Nationals to a 600 lb. J-Lo.
Riggleman should've left Stammen in in the 7th. Or so Stammen would have you believe:
"Yes, I would have liked to be left in... There's no second-guessing. Who's to say I would have got the next guy out? I think in my head I would have gotten him out. But that's the way it is."
