Top of Fourth

Milledge singles through the hole to left. Johnson actually gets to take some pitches, but he popped up to shallow center on a 1-2 pitch from someone named Logan Kensing. Milledge stole second, WMP was hit by a pitch, and Milledge stole third. (Think this lineup is a little different than at this time last year?)

Escobar hit a shallow sac fly to right that scored Milledge, and then Dukes absolutely scalded a ball to right-center. It was an easy double, but Pena was out at the plate 9-4-2 -- though it looked to me like he was safe.

Anyway, Nats up 1-0. Mock still in. That might be it for the updates, as I have to go down to the clubhouse to talk to the participants quite soon.

This team even "reads" more exciting. I can't wait for Friday's broadcast. Charlie and Dave less than 48 hours away!

"I have a tear in my eye."

So does my six year old--but mostly cuz its time for her to go to bed. Parenting quandry--she is intrigued by Lastings' rap skills...and wants to hear his song! Thanks Lastings!

I can listen to the game in the background in English, but I have to work at it in spanish...

WMP thrown out at the plate - looks like Tolman is back in mid-season form.

Thanks for doing these live updates - a breath of spring to melt the chill up here.

Don't we have any spanish speakers in the group? I'm listening but all I can pick out are names, certain spanglish terms like "blah blah blah right field blah blah," and an idea of what's happening by the announcers tone of voice.

JennX: I get bits and pieces... that's it.

I can understand bits and pieces of the Spanish as well, but my feed has been in and out. How did the Marlins score in the bottom of the 4th?

JennX, laughing hard here. Cracks me up you all are trying desperately to listen to the game in a language you don't know. How baseball-whupped ARE we??

Don't know exactly how but Nats.com boxscore has Luis Gonzalez with an RBI without a hit. SacFly?

NatsNut: I know... I feel ridiculous. Irrational exuberance at the first whiff of baseball. :D

Not a SF as that would be inbox score. See Escobar's entry. Unearned Run because of Milledge error?

That error doesn't count against Manny's goal, but beware Mets fans ready to gloat!

Way to go, Rob Bell, whoever you are!

Nice detective work. I saw the error but didn't see the Escobar entry. Didn't pay close enough attention to see exactly when the error occured.

yeah, the error, because it's not earned

Posted by: sarah | February 27, 2008 8:34 PM | Report abuse

I guess Milledge is up next

Posted by: Positively Half St. | February 27, 2008 8:34 PM | Report abuse

Right, it's an unearned run. Jacobs must have reached on Milledge's error, then gone to third on Willingham's single, and then scored on an FC.

Jacobs got a hit. He struck out to end first. Must have taken thirdon Willingham's single. Gonz's FC scores the Unearned Run.

Barry, We're blind out here!

Alright, I'm stumped then.

WTG WMP!

But wouldn't that be an earned run?
