_______________________________________ _________

Smoltz (5-1, 3.25 ERA), who turns 40 on Tuesday, has been very good this season and even better in his last three starts, winning all three with a 1.71 ERA. He has pitched at least six innings in all but one of his eight outings, yielding two runs or fewer six times.

The right-hander outpitched good friend and former teammate Greg Maddux in a 3-2 win over San Diego on Wednesday, allowing two runs over seven innings with no walks and seven strikeouts.

Jason Bergmann (0-3, 3.07) hopes for some more run support when he takes the mound for the Nationals. Despite an impressive ERA in seven starts, Bergmann hasn't enjoyed a win since he beat the New York Mets  in relief on Sept. 15, 2005. He is 0-4 with a 4.64 ERA in 14 career starts.

The right-hander pitched very well Wednesday at Milwaukee, although he failed to receive a decision after yielding one run and two hits in six innings in a 3-1 loss.

Bergmann seems to go against Smoltz just fine...Smoltz turns 40 tonight.  Might make him a little angry on the mound.   :D

What a great sight to see Guzman hitting.
I'll take that RBI anyway we can get it.
I'm sure Bergmann wants MORE than 1. Get him some more!!

We're due for a HR.

I think it's time to take Guzman off the s*%^&^t list and give him some support.  How about it y'all??

I've always wanted him in the lineup opposed to Belliard like some people wanted.
