This sounds dead accurate. Speigner should have a shutout going. (And Don Sutton just said this.)Although the lead off walk was incompetent, we couldn't ask much more of him. After Logan's flub, every fielder needed to FOCUS. But what happens? I would have rather seen Guz and Church COLLIDE than let it drop, like a couple of weenie-morons. I think Speigner lost hope when he started giving up the hits. Glad St Claire talked to him after that inning.
OUR HITTERS NEED TO RALLY, GET SPEIGNER THE WIN, and the city should hold a parade for him.

Yes, the defense was pathetic but Speigner was equally as awful. Lead-off walks always equal runs and then from there on he was just tossing BP. He even let the pitcher get a hit off of him which cost the Nats 2 more runs. If I never see Speigner pitch again it will be too soon.
