whew, nice pitching.  We have to score more runs here with 2-3-4 due up.  We have had a lead in every game of the series but we can never extend it to 3-4 runs.  It always ends up biting us in the ass too because our pitching can't hold the slim 1 run lead.

Well, he's never made an error in the majors so far and has 87 put-outs. Not too bad, but the numbers don't tell the whole story.
He made 2 errors in a 7 inning game in Columbus today.

I agree with what eagleskins said a while ago. We are winning but it sure doesn't feel like it.  It's like we are just waiting for Houston to take over and win the game again in the late innings.

:lol: I heard about that. Maybe he's more comfortable in the majors like Flores supposidly is. :D

Good hit CG. We must plate that run and hopefully a few more.

Feels like we're winning to me. Think about how the Astros fans feel. They were expecting to kill us. We're not doing great, but the Astros sure are doing worse in this one.

That sounds great for the Nats but nauseating because of AZ :?

LOL. I promise it is an honest opinion and not fanboyish in the least. His talent is the only reason why this organization even bothered to give him the time of day. They know the potential is there for Dukes to be the CF for a decade.

Bases juiced for Kearns, no outs. This should amount to a crooked number. We have to plate at least 2, really 3.

Backe's done.  His pitch count is up there, and we need to jump on him hard.

He helped him get ahead with that swing.
