Fedde with an 0-2 count is like a hockey team with a 2 goal lead

So, my teams are down 9 runs in 2 games. But at least Soto and Devers.

After Soto's homer, I briefly thought, 'well, I suppose they might be able to come back, even from a 6 run deficit.' The next thought was that this would require that the pitching staff not give up even more runs.  Didn't take long to get it back to a 6 run deficit.

It’s 10-2 in the 8th. I don’t understand not calling it?

Nats motto for 2022 seems to be “Bending Over for the NL East”.
