THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: Wednesday 6th July 2005 at RFK, Glavine outduels Livan (ending the latter's string of 11 straight winning decisions) in a 5-3 Mets victory...record now 51-33...http://espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=250706120.
Nats lose, Mystics lose, Orioles win...just a bad evening all round. Big Metro issues too, with a 'disabled train' (actually a derailed train, according to some people I talked to) at the north end of the Green line and single-tracking at that line's southern end - all evening, both before and after the matches - took a bit longer than usual to get home. Good thing there were only 28,951 at the ballpark, I guess.
So Strasburg lost again...while the day before that, the Nats chased and ultimately hung a no-decision on a Giants pitcher widely touted for the Cy Young. These things happen...even the '27 Yankees lost 44...and after that Giants series I suppose we were due for a letdown...live and fight another day.
