The majority of our games dating back to last year have been like this. Low-scoring, close games with decent pitching and no offense. 

Perez with 5 IP 1 ER and we barely hold on to a lead against the stupid Pirates and Zach Duke.
you would think that at some point the Nats would play small ball. steal a base, move a runner over etc.

Anyone who thought the Pirates were going to just roll over was nuts in thinking so.
Oh, they are rolling over, we just aren't taking advantage at all. We are getting solid pitching from Perez and we can't even touch one of the worst starters in the NL, Zach Duke.

Awful.  Quick inning for Duke it looks like.

As it stands and for whatever the reasons, this isn't going to be a sure fire series for us. As long as our offense remains anemic, this is what the season is going to be like. I'm astounded that we are doing as well as we are.

freaking pathetic.  Zach Duke, Johan Santana, Jair Jurrjens. It doesn't matter who we face, the results are always the same.  If you can throw a baseball you'll have no problems with our hitters.

72 pitches after 6 for OP - nice. but McCluth and Sanchez hit the ball hard. nice defence by NickJ and Zimm saved us.

We have no idea what Duke is throwing or a gameplan at the plate at all tonight.  This was a gimme win and we potentially pissed it away.

Zimm and Pena need to be benched tomorrow in favor of Willie and Boone.

Anyone else get the feeling that Perez is about to be rocked?  They have been killing the ball, but are hitting it right at people.

No heart, no confidence, Lenny Harris...I'm really shouldn't be that surprised our offense sucks.
