Lopez hit the ball deep enough to get it done. Should've done it earlier though.

He hammered very deep to the opposite field.  Belly's walk was huge too.  We deserved to win this game, at least pitching-wise.  It's amazing how we've started to win despite having a beyond anemic offense.

btw, I bet Braves fans feel like blowing their brains out right now.  :rofl:

I'm now 5-0 in games vs the Braves that I either attend or watch the majority of on TV.

There are several "Cox Must Go" threads on the Braves' boards.  He freaked up big time leaving Acosta in there.

This was a huge win.  We lose this game, and we don't recover IMO.  Now we can go on a legitimate run.  MVP of the game is Willie Harris.

Seriously.  My jaw dropped when I saw that Cox wanted Acosta in the game so badly that he didn't use a pinch hitter, and kept Acosta in the game in a key offensive situation.

YESTERDAY I predicted we'd win in a 3-2 nailbiter... dang it, this is good enough! A sweep and 6 of 8 for the Nonsense Nats!

Just looked at Gameday. Man, we got a clutch inning right on time - patient batting, and obviously a great hit by Flopsy. Terrific. One inning of good Nationals trumps 10 of incompetent Nationals.

First of all, Belly's Abs are not textbook.  Or even visible.

Two good things from the park besides the beautiful weather and the exciting game:

They're announcing before and during the game that people should not walk in the aisles during at bats.  I hadn't seen that before.

Drew nearly 30,000 for a 4:30 game.

Thanks to the mods for not locking this game thread yet so I can see how bipolar it was after I left work.  It didn't disappoint!

These boards are priceless.

Also 5 runs in 30 innings or 1/6 IP. That's better than solid pitching. This is the main reason we have won 3 straight :thumbs:
