Can someone provide a recap of what happened after the Cubs had a runner at third with one out? According to Gameday on nationals.com the Cubs had a runner at third with one out, and then suddenly the game was over and we won. Thanks in advance.

Baker hit a ground ball to third, Zim threw the runner out at home

Two out, then Lidge struck out Byrd

Word, thanks guys.

I picked up Clippard in fantasy and it's already paying off.

lol, yes.  It was a close pitch, but the pitch tracker they showed on the MASN broadcast had it bullseye on the corner, which seems about right.  I think 2 times out of 3 in that situation we don't get that call.

It's cause Byrd was wearing those dorky glasses

Sweet, thanks. The Byrd at-bat didn't register on Gameday at all.

Yeah, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but IMO the emotional rollercoaster is what makes these threads great.

The batter hit a pitch to Zim who threw home and the runner at third trying to score was out.  With one on at first and two outs, Lidge struck out the final batter for the win.

Great game that we normally would have lost.  Definitely need our offense to improve.  We need Morse healthy and we need Harper - eventually.

Runner on third (pinch runner).  1 Out.  Next hitter: hits right to Zimmerman while the runner goes.  Good catch, poor throw (high) but out at home.  2 Outs.  Lidge throws 7 or 8 pitches to KO last batter (get 'em looking). 3 Outs.  Game.

And LaStrikeout belongs on the bench. Tracy puts the ball in play.

The offense was not all that today, for sure -  but we easily had 4 homeruns robbed by the whacked wind today

First punch out for Lidge as a National.

I'm looking for Lidge to deliver payback to the Phillies, for letting him go into free agency so cheaply.  Hopefully he'll also help Werth with a "let's get them" Natitude, too.

Exactly. I made a ridiculous face after the triple and then had to explain to the guy getting on to the elevator that it wasn't directed at him.

LaRoche - OUCH!  Bullpen - awesome.  Bench - did what they needed to.  Dez - WOW!  Stras - about what I hoped/expected. Dempster - awesome stuff.  Offense - I must slap you now.  Cubs Bullpen - thank you!!

Just got home. I am so pissed that I missed this game. Pitching is going to keep the Nats in a lot of games this year.
