Can someone tell me why Stammen was taken out after 79 pitches? I know he wanted offense, but the game was tied so we could stretch him for an extra inning or 2.

cuz we had two on and two outs, we were trying to scratch out another run or two.  and you know the nats love pulling their starters early and on a positive note.  usually i don't agree with that, but tonight, in that situation i'm okay.  nyjer hit the ball hard but it was right at the 1st baseman.  a base hit there probably scores two and we're up 4-2.
