Scott looked like one of our hitters on that pitch.

I wonder if Sutton ever says this stuff to the pitchers. If he does, then they aren't listening.

What I fear is how often our pitchers retire 2 batters only to get killed by the third one.

Lame game thread. I wish more of them would be as lame since it means we're beating the opposition like it's a street fight.

That was a bad inning for Tim.  We need our pitchers to go 7 innings, regularly, for the sake of our bullpen.

Would you rather Tim have a 10-15 pitch inning while giving up 2 runs or a 25-30 pitch inning while giving up zero runs?

His pitch count is 74 in four innings.

I'd rather have a 10-15 pitch inning with no runs given up.  That's possible too.

I would take the scoreless inning anytime but that sort of pitch count is preferable for a reliever. A starter could not go more than 4 innings with stressful innings like that.

This was my feeling yesterday;
"Like earlier in the year this is one of those times to hit the road and get their hitting shoes back on in Houston and Colorado.  With Colome back then Bergmann and Bowie soon to follow they will get some pitching reinforcents.
The positive is getting another power bat in the line-up with Pena.  I love moving Kearns to center and keeping Church in the every day line-up along with Pena to see how they play out the season.  Lopez and Belliard will bounce back and they will start a winning streak with better starting pitching now that Hill and soon Bergmann is back in it.  Hill, Bergmann, Lannan, Hanrahan and Redding will be fun watching hopefully for the rest of the year."
It looks like the Nats are on their way to a winning streak!!!!
