Top of the first

Guzman singles on the first pitch he sees. Lopez follows with a single to right to put runners on first and second. Milledge grounds into a 5-4-3 double play, moving Guzman to third and bringing up Nick Johnson.

And in his first at-bat since Sept. 23, 2006 -- Johnson is hit by the first pitch he sees. I mean, come on.

Weapon of Mass Production then hits a warning track fly ball to center, and Olsen's out of the inning.

"Weapon of Mass Production," brilliant nickname, I will officially be calling Willy Mo that when I draft him to my fantasy team 4 rounds too early.

Old flawed faithfuls get on base. Young Turks make the outs. Is this a great game or what?

... not bad at all for the first action in five months. It can only get better ... and will.

... and to think they're afraid of Nick already!!

Go Alex Escobar! Go Nats!!
