"I felt like there wasn't much room for error, so I had to go right after him."
(Stephen Strasburg, via postgame interview/MASN, 7/30/2013)
Tigers 5, Nationals 1: Death, taxes, no run support for Stephen Strasburg, and Anibal BLEEPING Sanchez straight dominating the Nats.
Strasburg (7 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 7 K, 1 HR, 98 pitches) couldn't afford to give up a run. That grand slam by Alex Avila certainly didn't help.
10 back of the Braves in the NL East. Wild Card or Bust?
