"I think we've played better than .500, but we haven't hit better than .500. We've pitched really good for about three weeks now it seems like. We just have to try to hold the fort with our pitching until the runs start coming."

St. Louis Blues: Losing streak hits 5.
Cardinals 3, Nationals 2: Nats drop back to .500. Where's the offense?
One mistake by John Lannan, but an otherwise encouraging start.
Tyler Clippard coughs up another one. Where's Storen?
Offense takes another day off. But they still managed to tie it in the 8th on a RBI single by Ian Desmond after a great AB vs. Chris Carpenter.
The odds of the Wizards getting the #1 pick in the NBA Draft Lotterywere much, much better than the odds of Wil Nieves going deep for the 3rd time in his career. Who?
Update: Since Thursday's 14 run outburst, the Nationals have scored just ten runs in their last five games, just 6-for-37 with RISP.
Adam Dunn flies back to D.C. for a "minor procedure."Hmm.
MASN to air Strasburg's postponed start on tape delay tonight ~10:30 after Nats Xtra.
