They flew to California, then to Colorado, then back to California, and then they'll come back to DC.

Maybe Bob just decided to keep traveling east and visit family in St. Louis rather than do the zig-zagging flights?

Guess all these GIDPs are appropriate given the Nats are honoring Zimmerman - the GIDP king himself - this season.

A lucky bloop triple, a walk to Soto and 3 easy outs.

Well he got a walk. He went around on that one he tried to check.

Impressive by Adon to strike out Trout and Ohtani back to back.

Baserunners but no runs. Making the rookie look like Cy Young.

Cruz hitting fourth in the lineup is an absolute crime

Got out of it with a DP. 

Would be nice to score some runs.  To the radio for me.

And another squandered opportunity after getting the lead-off runner on.

But for a few flubs, the pitching wasn't actually all that bad. So naturally the offense checks out again.

EDIT: shortest GDT of the season.
