If Cruz doesn’t start hitting Bell may challenge Soto for the team walks lead.

I'm pretty sure the Nats lead the entire league, but I didn't check every AL team. The Tigers pitching staff has one HBP.

Adon just doesnt look ready. If Annibal comes back, i think he's gotta be the one sent down

I see there's a box now on the broadcast. I wonder why it wasn't there in the first couple of innings.

If you want to win the game get him the hell outta there. You were too late with Adon

I foresee San Francisco reaching double digits in runs scored this game.

That's not Yan Gomes catching for the Nats.

It gets late early here sometimes. Especially when the Nats give up seven runs in three innings.

By the way, you almost want to scream "3rd time through the order " when Adon came out in the 5th. With so many marginal starters and guys we are trying to build up, why this team doesn't try openers for the top of the order in the 1st is beyond me. It is organization philosophy, so it's as much on Rizzo as Davey and Hickey

Well get'em tomorrow  :couch:

The Giants TV announcer didn't get the memo yet about Soto's dead arm.  Earlier when Soto charged the ball and threw it in on one bounce to the plate, he commented on Soto's "strong arm".  He must be reading a scouting report from 2017.  On that particular play the ball was hit to shallow right field and Soto charged it well.  If it were 10 ft. deeper in the outfield the ball would've died before getting to the cutoff man.  You want to see a good arm?  How about Luis Gonzalez' 93 mph throw to home plate a few minutes ago.  That's a strong arm.

Jim Casey, who researches things like this, tells us that the Expansion Senators' "win of the day" was in 1961:

"Happy to be early with today's Expansion Senators win of the day. From 1961, in the second game of a doubleheader, the Nats top the Yankees 2-1,l behind the brilliant pitching of Hal Woodeshick."

Note:

Quote
Attendance: 21,904
Venue: Griffith Stadium
Game Duration: 2:14

22,000 was a huge crowd at Griffith Stadium, which sat about 25,000 for baseball. Some of those were behind poles and pillars, and maybe 7500 or 10,000 were in the bleachers, and the bleachers were somewhere in Prince George's County, it used to seem.

Look at that 1961 Yankee lineup, and drool. The Nats lineup, in the first season of the expansion team ("the New Senators", Washingtonians called them), featured Coot Veal (himself!) at SS. Gene Woodling, who was in RF, had been one of the Yankee "Gold-dust Twins" alongside Hank Bauer. I remember watching Woodling line a ball over the RF wall, a feat since the wall angled from 320 on the RF line out to 425 or more in right-center, and stood about 30 feet high. Dutch Dotterer started at catcher for the Nats, and I vaguely remember the name, but don't remember a thing about him.
