Number 20

Loss number 20, that is…which is what the Nationals apparently will get tonight. It’s the top of the 8th inning, and the Giants are leading the Nats, 10-4. Randy Johnson — who I swear must be about 60 years old (Jamie Moyer looks young compared to Stretch) — gave up 4 runs on 8 hits in 5 innings, including 3 home runs and 9 strikeouts. When the starting pitcher allows 4 runs in 5 innings, including 3 home runs, you would think the team that got those runs would win. But then, we’re talking about the Nationals here…Daniel Cabrera started the game for the Nats, which is why the Giants are kicking the Nats hindquarters. Cabrera issued 6 walks in just over 4 innings. Six walks! Why the #$&% does Cabrera still have  job??


On a much better note, the Capitals beat the Penguins tonight, 5-4 in overtime, to force a game 7 in the Eastern Conference semifinals!capslogo.jpgGO CAPS!!!

    Sorry about the Nats and congrats to the Caps. And you might want to stop by my blog and see the photos – Scott has paid off his debt for the Red Sox sweeping the Yankees in May. The pictures will make you smile!

    I’ll take a peek when I’m more awake, Julia…I promise!
    Sue, I know what you mean about not wanting to root for Pittsburgh teams. I feel the same way about Baltimore teams. LOL
