(Edwin Jackson seen here shaking his head 'no' to Davey Johnson as he walked off the mound at the end of the 8th inning. Screencap via MASN/TV.)
"Edwin Jackson pitched one heck of a ball game...he was shaking his head at me. I thought that meant he was done after eight, I had my bullpen ready. He came in and said no, I want to go, I want to finish this. What a great effort."
(Davey Johnson, via MASN/postgame interview, 6/11/2012)
Nationals Expos 6, Blue Jays 3: Edwin Jackson goes 8 strong (3 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 3 K, 1 HR, 108 pitches, 69 strikes). LaRoche and Ankiel go deep. too.
Bryce Harper goes 3-for-4, BB, 2 R, RBI, SB -- and Davey absolves Harper, blames Bo Porter ("He was waved on"), for getting thrown out by 10 feet at 3rd in the 5th...
