« Topic Start: July 22, 2005, 06:14:23 PM »

Roger Clemens, RHP (7-4, 1.47)
Houston Astros (49-46)


Ryan Drese, RHP (7-8, 5.47)
Washington Nationals (54-42)

Game Time: 7:05 PM

MLB Scouting Report:
The Nationals send their struggling offense up against Roger Clemens in the second of four games with the Astros at RFK Stadium. Clemens has continued his dominance, even at the age of 42. Fresh off his seventh Cy Young Award, he has held opposing batters to an average of .189 this season.

Right-hander Ryan Drese will start for the Nationals after surrendering five runs in three innings on Sunday in a loss at Milwaukee.  Since being acquired from Texas on June 10, Drese has had some dominant outings and others that have been less so. In six starts he has lasted seven innings or more three times, and just three innings twice.

Well, that didn't take too long.  2-run home run by Ensberg after Berkman walked.  2-0 Astros.

So far, I'm guessing, everyone is either at the game or glued to their televisions...

I'm popping in from time to time while at work and following the game online.  Looks pretty bleak so far.

Guillen swung at two pitchers that were balls... I bet after he takes one (or 2) he strikes out

Let's load the bases with none out, so we can screw that up too...

This one will go quickly.  Very sad what is happening.  This whole thing will get uglier if thats possible.

Very shrewd move by the Astros having Ausmus run while Clemens was at bat...  rather poor judgement by both Schneider and Guzman each throwing the ball :?

Sorry I've been absent, I had to get my good luck game burrito.  Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be helping much so far :(

Anyone know what the single season record for team strikeouts is?  With Wilkerson and Wilson, we might have a chance at taking it ;)

You mean by Nats/Expos hitters or most by a pitcher in any game at all?

Did that already in the 1st inning.. I no longer have 2 cents worth of confidence in this team, and 3 cents less respect for some on the players
