I had to leave the game after the eighth inning double play debacle with Lopez because it was so painful to watch us not tie the game. My only hope was to listen to it on the way home which was even harder when Belliard popped up the bunt. Then Flores hit the game winning double when I was pulling in the driveway so I got to see the whip cream in his face.
It was a wierd game. First three innings they looked great getting to Willis and Hill had 5 K's. Then from the 4th to the 8th they looked like the Nats of April with mental error after mental error as well as physical errors. Luckily the bullpen did an amazing job to keep it close. Then Tony B. almost ties with a drive to the fence followed by the Logan double and infield hit by Lopez. Watching the double play was very painful.
After all the nonsense in Colorado and LA they deserve to win a game like this!
Too bad you had to leave. I noticed that some people left after the 8th. And the crowd was one of the sparsest of the year following a pretty decent showing over the weekend. Day after a holiday weekend is always a ghosttown. But it was an excited crowd, and the drama really made it special. Just a fun weekend of games. These walkoffs are making these guys really feel they can win any game. I love that so many people contributed to this win.
