About that offense
So the reserves have come in and basically broken the game open with a five-run eighth inning that's still ongoing and in which they batted around against the beleaguered Dodgers bullpen. Singles in this inning from Guzman (25 doubles), Casto, Fick (in as the catcher) and Belliard, the latter for two runs apiece, and four walks by Dodgers' pitchers.
But now, stop the presses (or however you stop the publishing systems that put up blogs): Nook Logan just drove in a run. With a hard single. Up the middle. Left-handed!
Nationals 9, Dodgers 1. Barring a complete collapse by the bullpen, I'm going to say this is my last post of the afternoon.
But I'll leave you with this: The team held Kangaroo Court today, and it took nearly two hours. Robert Fick was the judge, Brian Schneider the court clerk. I'll try to get an idea of who received the biggest fines and what they were for after the game, and I'll put a couple in the actual, ink-and-paper newspaper (only $.35). Also, you might be able to pick up the actual, ink-and-paper newspaper (only $.35) tomorrow for some news on John Patterson. In the Style section. I'll keep you guessing.
(They just started playing "YMCA" as we head to the top of the ninth, and some guy in a Jamey Carroll Nats jersey (No. 2) was standing and clapping. Scenes from HSCS.)
(Oh, and now that's a final: Nationals 9, Dodgers 1. Kool & The Gang on the PA system. Talk to you tomorrow.)
