I’m watching the Nats/Dodgers game, and I nearly went to bed after the first inning, when Nats pitcher Jordan Zimmermann gave up 6 runs. The Nationals scored 1 run in the 6th inning, 3 runs in the 7th, and 6 runs in the 8th to take a 10-6 lead, before the Dodgers scored at the bottom of the 8th. The Nats have scored another run in the top of the 9th to take an 11-7 lead. But the game is heading into the bottom of the 9th…and a 4 run lead is nothing, considering how attrocious the Nats bullpen is. Oy…Kip Wells is pitching now. *GROAN* I predict that the Nationals will lose, 12-11…….
EDIT: OMG…after some bottom of the 9th drama, the Nats won, 11-9!! They actually beat the best team in baseball! This is the first time the Nationals have won in L.A. since May 4, 2005. The newest edition to the bullpen, Ron Villone, got the win…he arrived in L.A. shortly before the game began and was en route to the ballpark as the game got underway. He made it to the ballpark in time to enter the game in the 7th inning, and ended up getting the win.
Like I said…crazy game!
OK, I’ve gotta go to bed now, so I can get up for work in 4 1/2 hours………
