Chat reminder

We are chatting today at 2 p.m. EST. Please join the party.

Just to give the daily Nats fix until then, here's what happened last night (in 119 minutes) inside the billowy blue Glad bag. Acta took exception with his lineup's approach against Livan Hernandez, calling it "overaggressive" -- especially given how Hernandez "feasts" on young hitters who do that. But for my vantage point, I thought it was one of the most entertaining games of the year.

Meanwhile, John Lannan keeps pitching well and his record continues to reflect otherwise.

Among qualifying starters -- those who average at least one IP per team game, or 162 IP over the season -- Lannan is last, dead last, in run support.


Here's the breakdown among all major league starters of run support per start

5. Barry Zito (SF) - 3.25
4. Ubaldo Jiminez (Col) - 2.98
3. Aaron Harang (Cin) - 2.85
2. Paul Byrd (Cle) - 2.78
1. John Lannan (Was) - 2.39

Lannan hasn't won since May 18. But in his five starts since, he's never allowed more than three earned runs.
