There’s no crying in baseball

In one of the odder events of the season, Nats skipper Frank Robinson turned into Dick Vermeil yesterday following an 8-5 victory over Houston (The Post). Crying as he spoke, Robinson explained that he had to pull C Matt LeCroy after he made two errors and allowed seven stolen bases. To LeCroy’s credit, he understood the move and bore Robinson no ill will.

The game itself was the third in a row over the Astros for the Nats. They won the four game series to make it two series in a row. Nats play-by-play man Charlie Slowes says it may have been the most exciting Nats game ever, with lots of scoring, the aforementioned 7 stolen bases, and great defensive plays. They host the Dodgers for a three game set starting tonight with day games on Saturday and Sunday.
