In A Nutshell
Sohna tells me that she doesn't want to hear anyone complaining about Chad Cordero anymore. Apparently, Joel Hanrahan walked one serious tightrope to close out The Los Angeles Dodgers tonight at New Nationals Park. And Ryan Zimmerman, despite one error, played a pretty terrific game in the field at third base, maybe his best defensive effort in some time. The African Queen says Our Number 11's catlike reflexes were back--he just needs to start hitting with power.
And Oh Yeah!! She also says Lastings Milledge continues to blast the ball all over and out of the park. He hit his team leading 13th Home Run of the season. "The Guz" also added three hits and EVEN DOVE FOR A BALL IN THE FIELD!!
Collin Balester got the win. Our Number 38 his 5th save of the season. And Washington FINALLY beat Derek Lowe. Finally, on the sixth try.
In A Nutshell--that's what Sohna called me about in Denver to report late this evening. Final Score from New Nationals Park, Our Washington Nationals 2 and The Los Angeles Dodgers 1.
All on the very same day--Austin Kearns was placed on the Disabled list with a foot injury--from August 3rd? While Elijah Dukes will return tomorrow from his latest stint on rehab.
Finally, Instant Replay for Home Runs--starting Thursday. I am all for it--as long as it doesn't take a significant time to review and delay the games.
