Hopefully it's not a foreshadowing of things to come...

A rally in the bottom of the ninth? :pray:

 :whistle:

That's just a crazy statement, they've already scored one run. :-)

Silver lining...

That was one of the ugliest innings I've seen the Nats (Zimm) play in some time, and they only gave up 2 runs. 3 years ago that would have been a 5 or 6 run inning.

They gave up 3.

C'mon, I was pretty darn close.   ... unless we have a crazy ninth.

:panic:

We're not going to win every game.  Keep winning series and we'll be just fine.

And we have another series in ATL -- where the Nats are 5-1

We were five games up before this series.  The scenarios were that we could end this series two games up (if we got swept), four games up, six games up, or eight games up (if we swept).  I'll take a six-game lead.

The Braves are off to play the Giants starting tomorrow, so no off day for them on their cross-country trip.  The Giants have been playing pretty well lately and are in the playoff hunt themselves, so hopefully they can take at least 2 of 4 from the Braves.

Ugly game for us tonight.  Offense just wasn't there in clutch situations and our defense let us down late.  We get to stew over this loss on a day off tomorrow and then hopefully right the ship up in Philly this weekend.

Yep-2 out of 3 ain't bad. A win tonight might have gone a long way to taking all the wind out of the Braves' sails, but what's done is done. Hopefully this game is motivation to work hard enough to get to the point where the last series with the Braves will mean little or nothing (to the Nats, anyway).

Hopefully the Giants go on a tear on the Braves.

OK...took 2 of 3.

Might be time to let Lombo, Bernadina, and Moore play a couple of games. Let some combination of those three play and let Morse, Espi, or Harper re-focus

Desmond "tripped." Really? When I trip I don't skip, hop, trip again, then kick my leg around like my hamstring is tight. Hope it's nothing.

...or he got a cramp.  I've reacted similarly to both in my playing history.

Several guys struggling right now.  Even Harper's hit was just a grounder to short.  Morse finally got a hit.  Espinosa has looked not great.  Suzuki still bad.  I'm glad we have a day off tomorrow. 

Braves are a good team.  Their hitters look better than ours right now - especially when they sit the guys they have that are slumping like Uggla and McCann.

You guys can always find a way to twist things negatively, can't you?

I've come to expect the Nats to win every game. I know they can't, but each game feels like a winner. Game by game.

Braves fans are really annoying. You would have thought they had been winning games all week.
