(Yes: Steve McCatty picked up the phone to call the bullpen just two pitches into Henry Rodriguez's 9th inning Monday night. Screengrab via MASN/TV.)
"Henry is either lights out or sometimes he's exciting."

Nationals 2, Phillies 1: End of the Rod? Before Sean Burnett bailed out Henry Rodriguez in the 9th and grabbed the closer role...Gio Gonzalez mostly dominated (6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 9 K), Ian Desmond provided the offense (2-4, HR, 2 RBI).
Ho hum, just another Nats win over the last-place Phillies.
Braves lose, Nats now just .5 out of first place...
