"I don’t want to come out of the game ever. Especially in a spot like that. I put us in a hole early."
(Ross Detwiler, via Washington Times, 7/28/2012)
"I was actually pleased with the way Det threw the ball. That was going to be a game where I’m not going to let him throw a lot of pitches when it doesn’t look like we’re going to have much of an attack. I’m not going to push him in a game where I feel like we’re going to score two or three runs."
(Captain Hook Davey Johnson, via Washington Post, 7/28/2012)
Brewers 6, Nationals 0: Fiers and ice. 6 game winning streak over. Davey give Detwiler the quick hook in the 5th. Stammen makes things go from bad to worse. Nats bats go cold.
