... O well, nats streak is still in check. Only 25+ left, to win the wildcard!!!
On the radio pregame show, Nationals hitting coach Mitchell Page, who was with the Cardinals last year, was interviewed. Asked about what he did to improve Soriano, he said "Well...he could have played worse...We're glad he got better, but he could have played worse. That happens..."
THEN, when asked about next year, Mitchell said, "Well, we're not out of it YET. We could still win 25 consecutive games and get the Wild Card."
I like this man's attitude! Maybe make him manager next year!
I heard Kearn's homer in the car, but I was blown away to read about Ortiz' homer! It was funny how the radio guys did not SAY "no hitter" until it was blown. They kept saying, "Only 3 men have gotten to base, all on walks." They told everyone to stick around for the 9th inning.NICE GAME RAMON!!! THANK YOU!!!
