WSH 3, SEA 2

We win again!

Want to know how confident I am about this team? With the Nats clinging to a 2-0 lead in the sixth, I feel asleep until the ninth inning. When I woke up, it was only 3-2. No big deal. We win again.

I was really impressed with the was Armas pitched. Sure, TA2 threw 107 pitches in five innings. But that's partly because Seattle hitters gave him some real tough at-bats. TA2 did a great job of locating his pitches, however, keeping Seattle off balance for the most part. Some great situational pitching by him.

And how about Junior Spivey? Tomo Ohka can't hit like that. He flat out destroyed that pitch from Franklin. And a nice little play by Guzman to end the game.

My favorite part was the ovation the team got after the game ended. The guys appreciated that, I'm sure - and Frankie tipped his cap.

From the AP story:

"It's been a long time coming. We feel energized by our situation now," outfielder Brad Wilkerson said. "To walk off and know they recognize what we do is just a great feeling."

A 12-1 home stand, 10 game winning streak, and winners of 12 of the last 13. Now comes a bigger test, another West Coast swing. Let's hope we can do just as well as last time.

Anaheim's gonna hit, so I think that we need to do better with runners in scoring position. But the Nats have adjusted to every type of game this year, so I have confidence we'll compete.
Just a laugh for ya. Keep up the blogs. :)
