Manny Acta's Revenge
To really rub salt in the wounds, we will now visit another inspirational gem from Manny Acta,
"Sometimes, good things fall apart so better things come around."
(Manny Acta, via Nationals Journal, 6/11/2010)
Wow. That's so true.
Austin Kearns 7, Nationals 2: There are losses, there are bad losses, and there are losses to Manny Acta.
Austin Kearns blasts 2 HRs, 4 RBI. Somewhere, Jim Bowden is smiling.
Hold the phone: Newsflash! Kearns stunk for ~4 years in D.C. because of his bum thumb. Oh, okay, all is forgiven.
Atilano, no good: 5.0 IP, 7H, 6R, 3ER, 2BB, 2K, 3HR. 103 pitches, just 58 strikes. Hey, where the f**ck is Chien-Ming Wang, by the way?
Just sayin': Adam Kennedy was a butcher in the first, paved the way for disaster.
Ryan Zimmerman is Mr. Walkoff, Mr. Double Play. The door opened a crack in the 8th, but Zim killed the rally with a double play with one out and the bases loaded to snuff out the threat. 6 LOB for Zim for the game.
Can Strasburg start tomorrow, too?
