THE NATIONALS FINALLY WON A GAME!!!
Holy crap…1-7! We won’t be 0 for April after all! And the Baltimore Orioles’ record of 21 straight losses to begin the 1988 season will remain intact for another year. *whew*
This was a hell of a game, with home runs from Adam Dunn, Josh Willingham (as a pinch hitter), Elijah Dukes, and Alberto Gonzalez (filling in for the injured Cristian Guzman). The 4 insurance runs in the 8th inning were the icing on the cake…the Nats were determined to win this game! LOL
Great win for Shairon Martis, with a performance that was by far the best of any Nats starter so far this year. He pitched into the 7th inning, giving up two runs on 5 hits with 2 walks and one strikeout.
Maybe demoting Lastings Milledge to AAA Syracuse was the kick in the backside that the Nationals needed to finally get themselves going. Maybe the Nationals saw what I wrote in this blog about thowing myself off a bridge, and they decided to save my life by finally winning a game. Or maybe they finally just figured out what they had to do to win. Whatever they did, and whatever it took, all I can say is that IT’S ABOUT TIME!!!
