Hernandez Leaves Game With Injury

[UPDATE, 9:12 p.m.] -- Just got the latest word on the injury. Hernandez has a left hamstring strain. He will be reevaluated tomorrow.

In game news: Another RBI single from Nick Johnson. Nats are up 5-3 in the bottom of the eighth.

---

In the bottom of the sixth, while running down the first base line, second baseman Anderson Hernandez came up lame with what appeared like a left leg injury. About two-thirds of the way down the line, Hernandez -- slated to be Washington's starting second baseman -- suddenly seemed unwilling to put any weight on his left leg. Because of his momentum, he kept running, which turned into a hop after he crossed the bag.

He was helped off the field by trainer Lee Kuntz and first base coach Marquis Grissom.

This is the second time in the last week a Washington second baseman has injured himself while running down the line.

By the way, Hernandez's out ended an inning in which the Nats scored three and regained the lead. Cristian Guzman and Ryan Zimmerman both singled, scoring on an Elijah Dukes double. One out later, Nick Johnson pulsed a liner to center, giving the Nats a 4-3 edge.

I'll have an update on Hernandez soon.

Bob Carpenter is a moron.

The only good thing about Debbi Taylor's interview with Balester is that Carpenter and Dibble had to shut up.

With JimBo gone, can SoCH change his focus to Bob Carpenter?

Speaking of things I hate, "Sweet Caroline" is playing at HSCS. Aarggh!

The Hernandez injury looks awful. Hope it isn't.

I can deal with the moronic part of Carpenter—not knowing the count, etc. After all, this is bush league MASN you are looking at. What I find better than previously is: (a) the whiny, sing-song delivery Carpenter used in the past is absent in tonight's show; and (b) Dibble's voice is way better to my ears than was the old grey fuzzy head. Also, Carpenter and Dibble seemed much more at ease with each other than the previous pairing, and Dibble's commentary is at least OK.

Wasn't Lerner's appearance just plain embarrassing?

Once the season begins, turn on the game (MASN, MASN2, whatever) hit the 'mute' button & get Charlie & Dave, either by radio or by mlb.com audio feed.

Carpenter's a fair play-by-play guy & a good voice, but needs lasik surgery (or something) so he can get a better read on balls hit in the air. I'll withhold full judgement on Dribble just yet.

Dukes is great! :)

Um, it is Belliard in. Harris is also in.

So Belliard did come into the game. My apologies to Bob Carpenter. You've all brought up some good points - Carpenter really isn't all bad, aside from some bad judgment calls, and his pairing with Dibble was a good move, I think. It's only the second telecast, so there's plenty of time left to come to conclusions.

I didn't recognize Belliard without the dreadlocks sticking out below his helmet :)

Sounds promising on Anderson Hernandez that it is a "strain".

Dudes...

Who was it that said Comcast carries MASN HD now? What channel? It's not popping up on my channel guide.

(Yes, I call both guys 'n gals dude.

"Kill" list = 1) The playing of "Sweet Caroline" at any point in a Nationals' game at home, 2) Clint; just let him (or his peer replacement) go buh-bye, 3) the running gag of "Teddy always loses" in the "Racing Presidents" sthick, 4) Screech (Baby, Junior or other); the team has the Presidents - isn't that enough in terms of mascots?

To those who complain about the broadcast talent. Until the scientists in that secret lab below the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown can clone Vin Scully and Ernie Harwell you're going to have to accept play by play announcers who are merely good, not magnificent.

@BinM

I agree with your Four Horsemen of stupidity. You deserve a cabinet appointment. Bounty on Clint! Bounty on Clint! Bounty on Clint!

When was the last time we WEREN'T embarrassed by anything the Lerners said, did, didn't do or didn't pay?

people! we're winning games! and everyone's all "ho-hum, we beat the braves, what's for dinner?"

this is awesome!

"Add" list - 1) A replacement rib outfit for Red, Hot & Blue, 2) a real Tacqueria / Pupuseria, 3) more "local" music in the inning breaks (focus more on local artists - C.Brown, Fugees, even Seldom Scene), 4) Get Frank Howard involved with the team in some capacity.

Good additions, BinM. Except for local artists, please, please ANYBODY but D.C. Washington.

The timing is way off between the two (at least on DirecTV) so that is not an option.
