_______________________________________ _________

Bush (2-3, 6.03 ERA), though, has suffered the loss in both defeats. Through the early part of the season, Bush has been the least effective member of the team's starting rotation, posting the highest ERA and allowing the most earned runs (25).

Allowing the big inning seems to be his downfall.

Tuesday, the Nationals are expected to send Jason Simontacchi  to the mound for his first appearance since 2004 and first start since 2003.

The right-hander, who was pitching at Triple-A Columbus, went 20-10 with a 4.77 ERA for St. Louis from 2002-04, then missed 2005 after undergoing shoulder surgery. He pitched as a reliever for Bridgeport of the independent Atlantic League in 2006.

And for those individuals logging on who haven't checked the news today, being called up with Jason Simontacchi are:
- Winston Abreu, RP... 29 Ks in 18 innings at Columbus this year.
- Tony Batista, 3B... hitting .292 with a 542 Slugginf % in AAA. Batista played for the Expos and in 2005 hit 32 HRs with 110 RBIs for them.
Ryan Wagner on DL (rotator cuff inflammation). Josh Wilson designated for assignment. Cordero on bereavement leave.

Come on Nats, be aggressive tonight.  Bush will not walk very many batters.

Honestly, I would rather have Logan in the 2 spot. Guzman's OBP is horrendous.

Church just misses another one.

That's the same Tony Batista.

That injury for Wagner sounds serious.
