8 to 0.

Hanson is good obviously but when you give him pitches 6 inches off of all sides of the plate you have no freaking chance.

The Nats have bent over too to accommodate.

humiliating.

9 Ks to 0 BBs. career start for Tommy Hanson and he likely has another inning in him to get double digit Ks.

It's too bad he's facing Washington because I like watching Hanson pitch.

8 to 0. I didn't think anyone had walked.  great, 9 to 0 now.

He's pitching fine enough without the umpire's schizo strike zone, but combined with the calls he's untouchable.

he also gave up 5 hits, 3 runs, and 3 walks in that game. And the Giants offense is horrible.

This outing is far more impressive even though the umpire has been in his back pocket all game.

The Nats are 32 games under .500 and have the worst record in baseball despite going on a fluke 8 game winning streak.  Hopefully we bounce back quickly and don't let the losses mount like what usually happens with this team after a winning streak ends.

The Nationals now have 4 more losses than the Royals, 6 more than the Orios and Pirates and Padres, and 9 more than the Reds.  Bowden, Acta and Randy St. Claire are gone, along with Cabrera and a host of other garbage.  Riggleman wants the job and knows he has to win.
