Ronnie Belliard: right groin strain

In the top of the seventh inning tonight, 1B Ronnie Belliard came up lame while running out a chopper to short. He made it to first with an infield hit, but left immediately with what the Nationals are calling a right groin strain. He was replaced by pinch runner Kory Casto, who remained in the game at first.

doubtful. he will go day-to-day for about a week, and meat hook will be back by then so there goes that spot.

very cool video here of a ball girl making an unbelievable catch.

I'd rather Ronnie be healthy. I just would find it amazing to see Broadway come from the depths of despair like Hinckley did. I mean, who would be next? Clint Everts?

Potomac walks off with an extra inning win again. Again Boomer Whiting is at the center of it, scoring the winning run again.

P-Nats up 2-0 in their best of five series with game three tomorrow night in Wilmington.

That was a staged commercial with wires hoisting the stunt woman. It was filmed as a product placement ad and "leaked" into the internet as its marketing ploy. Nonetheless, it is cool.

Montz played very well tonight defensively and at a good at bat that resulted in a line drive out. To me, Martis was borderline. He completely lost his curve and it became quite a struggle. Still, only two runs allowed is not bad.

I've got a trivia question: Tonight was the 21st time the Nats were shut out this year. What's the record?

Good thing you explained yourself, Half St. You were walking a thin line there, buddy.... Might've been taken the wrong way.

I suppose one should expect a bit of a letdown. At least Shairon and the 'pen did their jobs. Was their kid that good that only Belliard showed up to play?

Thanks, Dale. I was wondering how Montz did, considering the long drive home, and then rustling up the family for his debut.

bummer, dale. i was hoping that was real...

Maybe among the changes necessary next year is a mojo change. Next year they simply need to tell Sibley hospital ("Where the Nationals go")we're sorry, but we won't be able to run your ads on the screen.

The hospital runs ads at the games? I... uh,... I... jeez, they offer a frequent injury discount or something? Planting a voodoo spell in the minds of their player/victims?
Yeah Catcher50, all visuals and discussions of injuries needs to be banned from the ballpark. What's next, mortuaries?

We were at the P-Nat game tonite, and I was disappointed that there was such a small crowd (812 per the box score). Great win, though! Now if Detwiler can clinch it as he did with the first- and second-half titles, we're all set.

Sorry to hear the news about Belli.

Posted by: natsfan1a | September 4, 2008 11:32 PM | Report abuse

Hey natsfan1a, 812 is over 200 more than the Marlins-Braves drew yesterday.
P-Nats fans should be proud.

Good point, cat daddy! :-D

BTW, my buddy and I went to rally cap mode in the 10th. Not saying that played a role in the win, necessarily, but still...
