"He had a long layoff, and that can cause you not to be sharp. It's one game."

"Over the course of a game you can make a few, a handful of mistakes, but it was way too many..."

Worst start by Nationals pitcher named Dan since the halcyon days of Daniel Cabrera in 2009. Homer Bailey > Homer Haren*. Yuck: 4 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 5 K, 1 HBP, 0 BB, 4 HR, 78 pitches.

Zach Duke (2.2 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 3 K, 1 HR), Henry Rodriguez (0.1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 HR - Grand Slam) don't help the cause.
Go get 'em tomorrow, boys. 158 to go.
