Marlins lead 1-0 after two
Clippard kindasorta settled down in the second. Grounder to short from Castillo, pop-up in foul ground from Coghlan that Zimmerman ran down nearly at Panera. Not kidding. Was past the tarp down the line. Matt Treanor (Mr. Misty May) then popped a ball behind shortstop that Guzman went to get, called for, was called off by The Weapon, and it fell in. Not Clippard's fault. He then got Piedra to line out on a nice play by Belliard.
Nats second: WMP flew out to center. (He put on a show in batting practice today, and you might read some about it tomorrow.) Escobar flies to center. Belliard grounds a single up the middle. Nieves flew out to center to wrap up the inning.
Couple of other notes: The Nats will unveil their new bigger-than-Rhode Island scoreboard (4,532 square feet) next Tuesday. They'll also have a kinda ceremony that day where home plate departs RFK Stadium and is carried to Nationals Park, where it will be installed.
Also: the George Washington baseball team will actually play the first game in the park on March 22, when the Colonials host St. Joseph's. I will only attend if the St. Joe's Hawk attends and pledges to flap the entire game, as it does during St. Joe's basketball games.
There are no fewer than eight people trying to run the scoreboard/PA right now. Wait. There's a ninth.
