Beltran Perez, RHP (1-0, 0.77)..... @ ..... Tom Glavine, LHP (14-6, 3.92)

For the first time in a long time, the Nationals have solid starters in their Minor League system. One of them is already in the big leagues. Right-hander Beltran Perez, arguably the team's best pitcher in the Minors, was outstanding on the mound on Tuesday and helped Washington defeat the Braves, 9-2. He pitched six shutout innings and gave up one hit. He struck out three and walked none. In fact, he retired the last 16 batters he faced. Perez will make his second start of the season on Monday against the Mets.

Glavine completed the eighth inning Tuesday night against the Marlins. That was a 2006 first for him. It came in his 30th start and encouraged the Mets, just as Pedro Martinez's first four innings did two nights later. Facing the Braves doesn't matter, winning won't matter. Preparation for the playoffs is what does matter. But he would be upset if his 31st start didn't produce his 290th victory.



First pitch at 7:10pm EST

Unless the ball was deep in the outfiled, Vidro should have stayed at 3rd.

Did you see the replay?  It was a contact play...somebody told Vidro to run as soon as the ball made contact with the bat.  Blame whoever made THAT call.

I've said this before but, truly, that was the worst half inning this team has played!

Minimally, we should have gotten the pitcher spot up this inning rather than starting next inning!  :x

In Vidro's defense, whoever called for the hit and run is to blame here, not Vidro.

No kidding...  why the hell would you send Brian Schneider to steal 3rd with a lefty batting and the pitcher up next?  Unbelievable...
