He started the game for the Nationals. This is/was a big outing for him, his first actual start against another major league team. He pitched out of the bullpen earlier in the week against Atlanta, coming in when the bases were juiced and allowing three runs. Not an ideal situation to judge him.
Well, here's the early returns from today:
2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 0 K
He might take the mound for the third, but I'm not sure. He gave up back-to-back homers to Ben Johnson and David Newhan to start the second and had problems finding the strike zone. He reached three-ball counts on five of the 13 guys he's faced so far. I have him for 49 pitches through two innings, with 28 strikes.
Nats go six up, six down through two, and the Mets lead 4-0. Winston Abreu now on in relief of Redding.
