Washington Nationals (4-7) @ Milwaukee Brewers (5-6)


Final Score:
Washington 1
Milwaukee 2

Keys to the Game:
Lack of clutch hitting
Defense
Momentum

Player of the Game:
Geoff Jenkins

With two outs in the first inning, Geoff Jenkins hit a 461' shot over the right field fence to give the Brewers a 2-0 advantage, which proved to be all they would need.

Notable Performances:
Ramon Ortiz: 8 innings, 2 runs, 10 hits -- 2-3, double
Chris Capuano: 7 innings, 1 run, 10 hits
Jose Vidro: 2-4, double, single, robbed home run

Summary:
With two outs and a runner on first, Geoff Jenkins put the Brewers on the board early in the first inning.  The Nationals bounced back, scoring a run on an RBI single by Felipe Lopez, scoring Jose Vidro with two outs.  Lopez now leads MLB in average with RISP.  Jose Vidro almost gave the Nationals the lead, when he was robbed of a two-run home run in the fifth that would have gave the Nationals the lead, and the win.  The Nationals left Nick Johnson on second base in the ninth, as Derrick Turnbow secured the victory for the Brewers.  The Nationals are now 4.5 games back in their division, needing a winning streak to keep them alive with nine games to play.

San Diego Padres (6-6) @ Washington Nationals (4-8 )


Final Score:
San Diego 1
Washington 0

Keys to the Game:
Errors
Pitching
Defense

Player of the Game:
Dave Roberts

Along with his 2-4 night with 3 stolen bases, he scored the only run of the game on errors by Brian Schneider and Ryan Church.

Notable Performances:
Tony Armas: 8 innings, 1 run, 7 hits allowed
Woody Williams: 8 shutout innings, 9 hits allowed
Nick Johnson: 3-4, double

Summary:
A great pitchers duel, both teams failed to come up with runners in scoring position.  The key play of the game came in the 6th inning.  With Dave Roberts stealing for the second of three times in the game, Brian Schneiders throw sailed into center field, and went past Church, allowing Roberts to score, the lone run that won the game for the Padres.

Washington Nationals (4-9) @ Pittsburgh Pirates (4-8 )


Final Score:
Washington 1
Pittsburgh 2

Keys to the Game:
Lack of clutch hitting
Defense
Lack of clutch hitting/baserunning

Player of the Game:
Zach Duke

Duke pitched himself out of a lot of jams, including giving up nothing with the bases loaded and 2 outs with Soriano at the dish in the 8th inning.

Notable Performances:
Alfonso Soriano: 1-4, single, 7 runners stranded :x
Brian Giles: 2-4, double, RBI
Mark Bellhorn: 1-4, double, RBI

Summary:
The Padres got on the board early, with Brian Giles and Mark Bellhorn stroking doubled to the left-center field gap.  The Nationals battled back, on two-out doubles by Soriano and Johnson, with Nick driving in Soriano.  The Nats got Zach Duke in a jam in the seventh inning, with the bases loaded and two outs, with Soriano in the dish.  But Soriano grounded out, and the Nationals lost another close game, downing their record to 4-10.  The Nats have lost 4 straight, three of those 1 run games, the other game a two-run affair with Houston.  The Nats find themselves unofficially out of things in the pennant race, back 4.5 games in the division and Wild Card races.
