Wait, We’re Winning?!

The Nats have had a really rough season. At 25-32, there are only a few teams with worse records, and their god awful 10-13 home record is eclipsed only by the Marlins. There have been injuries (Patterson, Eischen, Guillen), and there have been heartbreaking losses (including some late game winners and extra inning games gone bad), but now it seems that the Nats are getting up on their feet and winning some balgames, including a weekend sweep of the Brewers, including two homers last night to bring his season total up to 21.

They’ve won four of the last five series, taking sets from Baltimore, Houston, the Dodges and most recently the Brewers, the Nats are on a bit of a roll, and just in time to face Atlanta. They’re sending Livan to the mound tonight and Hernandez has three wins in his last three starts, so there’s a good shot there, and Ortiz goes to the mound on Wednesday, also with three straight victories notched on his belt. The middle pitcher of the series is a bit of a wild card, Shawn Hill has but one start this season and while it was a solid seven inning effort against the Dodgers, it’s a bit tough to say how hell do against the Braves.

As usual, Chris Needham from Capitol Punishment has a great week’s roundup including stats and awards for our beloved Nationals. Don’t forget, the Nats come back to RFK in time for a weekend series against the Phillies, so make sure to walk up and get some of the cheap tickets, then move down to the good seats in the fifth inning when the ushers are all on their second beer. Go Nats!
