Nationals vs Phillies, Game 1
« Topic Start: May 19, 2008, 06:08:43 PM »
   Game Time: 7:10 pm    TV: MASN    Radio: WWWT 1500, 107.7 FM


Tim Redding
5-3, 3.55 ERA

Brett Myers
2-4, 5.91 ERA

(2B) Felipe Lopez
(SS) Cristian Guzman
(3B) Ryan Zimmerman
(1B) Dmitri Young
(CF) Lastings Milledge
(RF) Rob Mackowiak
(SC) Jesus Flores
(LF) Willie Harris
(SP) Tim Redding

Jimmy Rollins (SS)
Shane Victorino (CF)
Chase Utley (2B)
Ryan Howard (1B)
Pat Burrell (LF)
Geoff Jenkins (RF)
Pedro Felix (3B)
Carlos Ruiz (SC)
Brett Myers (SP)

_______________________________________ ______________

In his last start, Redding pitched six solid innings and gave up one run on
two hits against the Mets. He struck out four batters and walked two
others. New York took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the sixth off Redding,
when Brian Schneider took a 2-0 pitch and hit the ball over the right-field
wall for his second home run of the season. But Redding became the winning
pitcher when the Nationals scored four runs in the top of the seventh
 inning.


Nothing is working for Myers, who has now allowed six earned runs in two
straight starts. His velocity was largely there, but location and pitch
selection have betrayed him. He seems like an open book, with hitters
seemingly knowing what's coming, and teeing off. Myers suspected earlier
this season that he was tipping pitches, but pitching coach Rich Dubee had
ruled that out. Myers will be the first Phillie to pitch at Nationals Park. He's
7-7 with a 4.91 ERA in 27 career appearances against Washington.

the madness in the outfield continues. how many combinations can manny think of? he needs to go with one starting outfield, and stick with them through the ups and downs.

11 pitch AB but he's retired. Why does it seem like whenever we have a long AB it always results in an out?  :?

not sure why so many people were worried about Zimmerman.  he's just a notorious slow starter.

we should make up an excuse to put him on the DL for the entire month of April every season.

Guys, that was an AWESOME defensive play by Zimmerman in the top of the first. I'm starting to believe all this "best defensive first baseman" stuff!

Why is Flores still stuck in the order between all the lousy outfielders? Bat him sixth at least...
