Alex Caldera, pitcher acquired by Nats from the Royals this offseason, got crapped on in his debut with the P-Nats. He did just switch to relief, but his 4 ER almost put the game out of reach. That was until an argument with the ump by Matt LeCroy (apparently he attempts to get thrown out of the game at least once a month) fired up the P-Nats. King, Leon, and Dykstra all reached and Perez beat out a DP ball to set things up for Rick Hague. Hague put the team back in the game with an oppo-boppo. Bottom of the 8th, P-Nats down 1.
