Oh Hello Edwin Jackson, Welcome

DC Sports Nexus ---- Saturday, April 14, 2012

Edwin Jackson watched Joey Votto's pop fly land in the glove of the Washington Nationals, ending his complete game outing with the Nationals 5th straight victory.  Jackson was amazing, giving up only 2 hits, 1 run, walking 1, and striking out 9.  He even added a base hit in one of his 4 at bats.

All of this coming after a long 13 inning game where the Nats used almost all of their bullpen.  This is exactly what the Nationals needed to get everyone rested for the next game.  The fans gave E-Jax several standing ovations and he deserved it.

Adam LaRoche continues to be the man on offense for the Nats, driving in 2 runs and Jayson Werth is playing some decent baseball with good baserunning, selective swinging, and even getting some big time hits.

The Nats starting rotation is pitching like they want to win a championship and when the Nats offense shows up they are hard to beat.  We will take a look at the starters after Detwiler makes it 2 starts a piece tomorrow.

The Nats pitching staff has a 2.04 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP, and 79 strikeouts...

The Nats have won their first three series and they look for the sweep against the Reds Sunday at 1:30 (Detwiler vs Mike Leake)  D-Wildz pitched 5 shutout innings in his first start and he looks to try to slowly work his way to a 9 inning arm.
