Two innings in the books

Top 2: Darnell McDonald single to left, Chris Snelling hit by a pitch, D'Angelo Jimenez flies to center field, Frank Diaz flies to center field, Juan Brito (who badly missed a pop-up in the previous inning in foul territory) grounded into a fielder's choice. That would bring Jerome Williams's final line to 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 HBP.

Bottom 2: Ryan Church just drilled a doulbe off a hanging breaking ball from Redding into the gap in right-center. (Of course, had Church gone to the Mexican winter league and learned how to hit the breaking ball, it would've been a homer. Kidding.) Broadway follows with an opposite-field single to left, Church to third, then scores on Josh Wilson's sacrifice fly to left. Nook Logan then tried the drag bunt to the right side of the infield (he was hitting left-handed) and it took a good play from Redding to Castro covering the bag to get him. Broadway takes second. Rule 5 catcher Jesus Flores then took a massive cut and popped the ball into shallow left, where Snelling fought the sun to make the cactch.

End 2: Nationals 1, Nationals 0. Redding: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 B, 1 K

(Really, I'm going to quit. I am. I have to go to the clubhouse and talk to some of these folks after they get into the clubhouse.)

Has Nook Logan looked into laser eye surgery?

Keep it coming as long as you can... this is fun.

Is Nook deciding to bunt on his own, or are they asking him to practice drag bunting?

Did Williams look better than Redding? Can we read anything into their performances yet?

No time, Diaw. He;s busy trying to drag bunt his way out of a starting job...

Barry - what does Rule 5 mean?

Posted by: Patty | February 28, 2007 1:55 PM | Report abuse

Rule 5 refers to a minor-league player who is picked up by another organization (the Nationals in this case) and is required to stay on their major-league roster for the subsequent season. There are specific situations and procedures for how this occurs, but that's what it means in a nutshell.

Thank you for the explanation, Cosmo.
