2 innings for Mike with 25 pitches.
He doesn't give back the lead immediately.
A play that looked very solid from Vidro.

Please continue guys, by adding some runs!

need to move runners over you get a first pitch pop-up from zimmerman....need a groundout from church and you get a comebacker to the pitcher....need an rbi single and you get a deep flyout from vidro
i think that offensively, it has been the biggest problem for the Nats over the past 2 yrs: we dont use our outs effectively. Zimm should have at least moved the runners to 2nd and 3rd (then Lopez would have scored on the double) Church had a runner on 3rd with 1 out and should have hoit the ball to the right side or a sac fly. 2 opportunities to do something useful with your outs - but failed.

from the replay it appeared that the ball slipped out before his hand got to it for the exchange

Unbelievable.  We have a knack for siezing defeat from the clutching jaws of victory.
