Great Start

Nats 4, Cards 1

A long journey begins with a single step. The Nats need to step it up and dig deep if they want to make the playoffs. Tonight was a great start.

A 4-1 victory over the best team in the majors is a good way to start. It would have been nice to take more than one game from the lowly Reds this week. But that's in the past. Tonight, the Nationals did what they had to do against the Cardinals.

Loaiza was great. He allowed only a single run in the seventh once he was tiring. He only allowed three hits while throwing 96 pitches, silencing the best offenses in the majors.

And the bats managed four runs. A veritable explosion of four runs!! Not bad for the Nats' offense.

Wilk led off the game with his second consecutive homer. (He homered in his last at-bat last night) Jose Guillen had himself a decent night too, going 2 for 3 and scoring a pair. Loaiza got himself an RBI too.

A nice start for the Nats. Let's see if they can continue it. Getting at least one more against the Cards would be very, very sweet.
