An inning in the books
Jerome Williams started for the home team, and he allowed a seeing-eye-single from Bernie Castro (who was erased trying to steal on an exceptional throw from Rule 5 catcher Jesus Flores) and then Rafael/Ronnie Belliard followed with a bouncer to short that SS Josh Wilson threw slightly wide of the bag but was ruled an infield single by the unofficial/official scorer in this very unofficial game. Williams got out of the inningon a pair of fly balls to right by Alex Escobar and Robert Fick.
Tim Redding started the bottom of the first by throwing four straight balls to leadoff man Felipe Lopez, then picked Lopez off first. Cristian Guzman then ripped a single to right, raising his Intrasquad batting average to .667, which is 448 points higher than his 2005 average. Zimm flew deep to center, allowing Guzman to advance to second, but Redding struck out Austin Kearns looking to end the inning.
End 1: Nationals 0, Nationals 0
(And I can't believe I'm providing this level of detail. I will now cease -- for a while.)
