Well that was fun. I feel really badly about not starting to watch until the fifth inning and then half sleeping through the next three
Strong finish with a backwards K in the book to end it.


I didnít think the Nats could handle the Dodgers but this is ridiculous

meh, didn't expect a sweep, in fact, I almost expected the Nats to lose as they had just won 9 in a row, hard to keep that going. Ideally they need to split in LA

Stras bettter bring his super A+ game.


Hope the Nats take some batting practice.


And maybe some infield too.


And the bullpen needs to NOT give up two home runs in the eighth (plus two more about 6 feet short of home runs)


as ALTA said, the Nats were DUE for a loss after the run they've had.
Need another hot streak.  And it would be nice if our best hitter didn't go 0 for the series.


GO Nats!


At least it wasn't as bad as the Braves loss.  They GAVE that game away.  Acuna looking like a real Class A ass there.
i'm naturally against the Braves, as I am a Nats fan and they seem to always have our number, but my parents are big braves fans and that game was heart breaking.
At least the Nats loss was a loss from the 1st inning all the way through.  THe braves should have had that one.

the MLB is just like the NHL, the team that had the best regular season record rarely does well in the playoffs

Happy to see Zimmerman back in the lineup.  I look for him to have a big game.  Nats desperately need a win tonight.  Bats have to come alive and our bullpen has to be solid.  I am not sure how many innings Strasburg will be able to go on short rest.

Leaving the bases loaded hurts.  Good at bat by Eaton, Nats up by 2.  Now Rendon doubles and it is 3 to nothing.  I like it, I like it.

Looks like that may be it for Stras.  Who will pitch the 7th, if Nats can get through that inning without giving up any runs I think we have a good chance of hanging on and winning this game.

Scherzer is going to pitch the 8th, that should be interesting.  Was not expecting that.

Nats sure make it interesting. Stranded base runners, Bad base runners (Cabrera). Ace closer loading the bases...Man that was stressful.
I was a little surprised they didnít let Stars go one more, but then when it turned into a long at bat I figured (especially with no confidence in the pen)


I mean you SHOULD be able to rely on your pen for 3 innings, but when you have to rely on not one, but Two of your starting aces to come in relief, that should tell you something about your bullpen


I was fine with using Stras the other night cause the season was over if the game slips away but o donít like using Max tonight. I mean he did well but now what?  Does that push him back for a start?
Who starts Sunday?  He only threw like 13-14 pitches but I donít know how that affects everything
I mean I want the win, but mostly I possess we have no middle relief.


Strasburg was outstanding


Go Nats


Iím only expecting 5 Washington wins this weekend:  2 Caps, 2 Nats, 1 Skins  :lol:
