Cut to the Chase

Nats 8, Rangers 2

Hey Brad Wilkerson! Nice to see you! Glad you could make it to the game today!

In all seriousness, it's great to see Wilky hitting again. He really seems to be hurting of late. Wilk hasn't missed too many games, but he seems to grimace a bit when he swings and runs after balls in the field.

Today he was 3-5 with four RBIs and another double to add to his Major League leading total of 26. Wilk hadn't necessarily stunk up the joint of late, but I think I'm probably not the only one who hasn't felt confident when he came to the plate in key situations.

Sunny Kim got it done today too before coming out with an arm cramp. His stuff was really nasty, and he did what Patterson and Armas failed to do - mix up his pitches and locate throughout the zone. Recent call-up Travis Hughes, Luis Ayala and Gary Majewski all did fine jobs in relief, keeping the Rangers at bay.

We're 3-3 after six games on the road against the best teams in AL West. Not bad. Time to open a can of you-know-what on the hapless Pirates.

Wilktoast definitely has been a different guy than the one who was contending for MVP at the beginning of the season, but shit happens. He's finding his groove again despite his pain and I give him alot of respect for that.
