Why not? They have great hitters, and great hitters are supposed to prey upon weak and ineffective pitching, which is what the Nationals have. They would've probably scored this many against one of the regular starters, too.
No chance. After the first week or two, Hill and Bergmann were just lights out in every single start. You could count on them every game to give you good chance to win. They never got knocked out of a game early.
