On to the bottom of 10

Very nice, efficient jobs by both starters today, Washington's Shawn Hill and Atlanta's Jair Jurrjens. It's 1-1 after 9-1/2 innings. I suspect Hill will say he didn't have his best stuff (lots of fly balls, just one strikeout), but he needed 94 pitches to get through eight innings. This is why I think he can be something. He's not healthy, but he's still effective.

Some left over stuff from Jim Bowden and Chad Cordero.

"This is a tough injury," Bowden said. "It takes a while. There's a lot of edema [swelling] in there. It's going to take a while. Four to six weeks is our best estimate. It's unfortunate, but hopefully we'll get him good and strong and he'll have a strong second half for us."

"It's going to be a lot worse than the first 15 days," Cordero said. "I don' t know what I'm going to do. Maybe go down sit in the bullpen when we're at home, because those are my buddies down there. That's my family. I'll probably go down there sit with the family and try to go on and treat it like I was still active. It's going to be tough. I'll probably be doing a lot of wandering back and forth from the clubhouse back to the dugout."

Nats with bases juiced here. Probably should pay attention.
