I'll take any win over the nats especially if it involves brat harper striking out in a key spot, but I'd like to see the bats start heating up.

Does our offense suck? Yes. But think of it this way. We've faced Gallardo, Lohse, Garza, Zimmermann, and will face Strasburg and Gio the next 2 games. That's a ridiculously difficult start. BJ Upton, he's not "improved" or whatever the crap is that we're being fed about him. He's lost and helpless. At this point, I feel bad for the guy. He looks like he has no idea what to do to fix if. Dan Uggla to me looks like someone who got sick of being terrible, and he put in the work. Dan looks better.

Saw a stat this morning on Twitter. League average on BABIP is .297. Atlanta's team BABIP is .220. Means they've not exactly had any luck either. Still, Atlanta is 3-1 through this tough stretch. Split the next 2 and head home.

Some serious Natitude that inning. Zimmerman throws one in the stands with 2 outs to give us a run with 2 outs then Teheran ties the game

I can't believe Zimmerman has that much trouble throwing to first that often. I can't understand why he still plays third.

Dan Uggla with a 2RBI Single. That's two clutch hits for Dan this year, already passing last years total.

I really like Alex Wood. I think he will become a solid starter.

... And then the Nats proceed to beat the Braves with their # 5 starter, and 4 of the 8 position players were the backups.

Braves have owned Strasburg since he was a rookie. Beat him in his first start against the Braves in 2010, and he hasn't pitched well against us with the exception of 1 start in 2012.
