Up 5 Gio. Let them swing the bat... at best they'll only get on-base 3/10 times... walking them gets them on 10/10 times.

You can't walk back to back batters with a 5 run lead.

And that's why the walks hurt.

Yikes.

And yet another Nationals starter collapse complete.

Don't know why they gave into Freeman and threw a fastball there.

Can't blame Davey today. The 2 walks were inexcusable and the HR was just icing on the cake. Gio didn't get it done.

Not really. Completing six innings shouldn't be considered a big feat. :shrug:

Goddamn walks.  :hang: Should have hung that curveball to the first batter, and we'd still be up four.

At least the A bullpen is up.

Exactly. It wasn't that long ago that people were sucking his **** and demanding he play every day. They turn on players quickly.  rofl

Today, considering the heat and the long innings he was throwing early in the game, it would have been huge. You can't walk batters with a 5 run lead, period. Gio let us down today.

Sure glad we got Zimm's homerun and Desi's double and subsequent score or we'd be tied.

Have to ask Davey about his thinking re: hooking Gio. It's ridiculously hot, he started inning at 98 pitches & walked 1st two batters.

I think he left him in for the lefty/lefty matchup vs Freeman.

Well, then again, Davey may have yanked him before the tying run came to the plate and we'd be up three.
