I couldn't stay up and watch last nite so I got in bed with my XM radio and listened. I kept praying the one run lead would hold but it was not to be. Interestingly the San Diego announcers praised our starting pitchers to the hilt. When it came to the bullpen, they said it was okay but not great.
While I still think the Nats will do well this year because of the starting pitching, trying to win with one or two runs most nights is not the best way to approach any playoffs. We desperately need our no. 3 and no. 4 hitters back.
