L-Millz, J-Roll, and we've got a game
A while ago, Lastings Milledge hit his first homer as a National, a two-run shot that put the Nationals up 6-2.
Now, the Phillies have battled all the way back. They chased Matt Chico on Chase Utley's solo homer in the sixth. Joel Hanrahan came on and impressively struck out Pat Burrell and Pedro Feliz to get out of that inning, but he walked Jayson Werth to lead off the seventh, then departed after giving up an RBI double to Carlos Ruiz.
Enter lefty Ray King. Does his job in striking out the left-handed Geoff Jenkins, but then faces Jimmy Rollins, a switch-hitter batting right-handed. Rollins tied this baby up by driving King's 1-1 pitch out to left-center. It's 6-6 going to the eighth.
I'm a bit gassed after the weekend's festivities, and might be remiss in posting the rest of the day. However, if anyone has pictures from last night they'd like to post, please go here. Washingtonpost.com sports editor Jon DeNunzio is obviously trying to get more fans involved in our Nats coverage, and this might be a cool way to do it.
Hang on for the end of this one.
