At Least The Cherry Blossoms Looked Spectacular
The President working overseas sent me to work overnight after last evenings game between Our Washington Nationals and The Philadelphia Phillies. Having just made it home and heading to Nationals Park for the series finale in just a few hours--time to get some rest.
Game Two of 2010 was disappointing thanks to another poor starting pitching performance--this time by Jason Marquis--and for the continuing domination of Ryan Howard socking baseball after baseball out of Washington's home ballparks. His two run homer to centerfield last night off Marquis in the 5th was his ninth hit on South Capitol Street. And 17th--including RFK Stadium--since baseball returned to D.C. in 2005.
That's a remarkable statistic for a visiting player.
Also notable--how Ian Desmond is one exciting young player. Athletic, dynamic and thrilling to watch--because you have no idea whether he's going to make a phenomenal play or boot a routine ground ball. Desmond has shown everything he can offer--both good and bad--after the first two games of the season.
Final Score from Nationals Park where At Least The Cherry Blossoms Looked Spectacular--The Philadelphia Phillies 8 and Our Washington Nationals 4.
Now, it's just time to get that rest.
