Is This a "W" I See Before Me?

  • Nationals 5, Brewers 3

If you're the kind of baseball fan who believes that luck tends to even out over the course of a 162-game season, then the Nats could be in for a rough July. Of course, sometimes a team can win in spite of itself. Rare clutch hitting by Jose Guillen provided a two run cushion, and, for the first time in a long time, the bullpen didn't give it back. Kudos to Gary "Tex" Majewski, Mike "Billy" Stanton, and The Chief for a return to form. And a special thank you to Christian "GOOZ!" Guzman for providing an offensive boost by getting himself ejected for arguing balls and strikes, neither of which he can hit anyway. Gooz arguing pitches is like Stevie Wonder complaining about violence in music videos. Maybe he's right, but how would he know?

Today's subtext-ridden matchup: Drese vs. Ohka (Coming soon, a link to Watson singing the Tomo Ohka Song).

DayWatch: A new feature here at Nats Triple Play, chronicling Zach Day's effort to win 10 in the 2nd half, and make Watson eat his hat.
