What a win!

Sadly, I didn't get to see the game yesterday, but that will be the rule, not the exception, particularly for weekday games.

I'm going to watch this one on MLB.TV, though. It is, after all, the Nationals' first win (7-3). And, what win it apparently was! Wilkerson went 4-4, hitting for the cycle for the second time in his career. Castilla also looked good at the plate for the second game in a row, going 4-5. Guzman was 1-5... does anybody know if he got the ball out of the infield?

Robinson's bullpen usage was much different in this second game. Osuna only pitched the end of the 6th, and then Eischen, Ayala and Cordero all pitched a scoreless inning. Cordero gave up a hit, and didn't earn a save, since we were ahead by 4.

My season tickets have now shown up. I'll try to take pictures today and get them posted.

Our errant shortstop, the Man of La Guzma, did indeed hit the ball out of the infield once in his five at-bats yesterday. He flied to left his last time up.

I'll even give him partial credit. In the AB before the miraculous flyout to left, he popped it up. It sure beats the groundout!

And spare us any more pictures, ok? You've done enough damage! (Although the first pitch is my desktop now)
