Nationals vs Marlins, Game 4
« Topic Start: September 03, 2023, 02:24:01 PM »
I guess indifference to the team has reached a new low.

Washington Nationals vs Miami Marlins
Where: Nationals Park
When: Sunday, September 3, 2023, 1:35 EDT
Weather: hot
TV: MASN
Radio: 106.7 FM

Josiah Gray vs. Sandy Alcantara

Gray fell into an early 3-0 hole in the first inning while I was making lunch, but seems to have settled down.

Thomas hit a nice long HR but Alcantara has been otherwise fairly dominant.

I watched the top of the first, and thought it might be a good day to start drinking early. Maybe Brooklyn Lager, rather than a margarita...

Night Train Lane does not slow down for a whistle-stop town like Miami.

It's too bad Sandy Alcantara is not a middle reliever, since al-qantara (القنطرة), the origin of his name, means "the bridge" in Arabic. Specifically a vaulted or arched bridge. It was a place name in Muslim Spain and became a surname.

Can’t keep sending Vargas out there.   Nor Gray
