That's what I'm thinking. Is Lombo better against Hanson than Moore?

I'm pretty sure Moore is better period than Lombo, which is all that should matter.  The Nats need to win this game.

That's why I was wondering :shrug: I'd like to see Moore out there, especially since Bernie needs rest.

Moore's starting tomorrow and Lombo, as Davey pointed out, has a homer against Hanson.

Davey likes to have a right handed pinch hitter.

Not sure why it matters because Moore is better against righties than lefties. But it's old time baseball logic.

I remain unconvinced.  Moore is rotting on the bench, ready to flourish in Morse's role.  I don't get what Lombo adds in left field.

Stolen base for Werth but K for Harper

Not a very good start for Harper. This is just the thing that will frustrate him. Ugh.

Hard to see Harper's black bat against the black background, too a second to realize that Harper swung.

Zim should have crushed that 2-0 pitch.
