H-Rod Blows, Rats Beat Nats

Pirates 5, Nationals 4

In the bottom of the 9th inning, Henry Rodriguez came in to save the game for the Nationals and proceeded to blow his 2nd save of the year giving up a 2 run shot to Rod Barajas and the Pirates took the first of the series 5-4.

Edwin Jackson gave up 2 solo shots but other than that only gave up one more hit the entire 7 full innings he pitched.  Another great pitching performance down the drain.  The offense only gave E-Jax 2 runs to work with, so he wouldn't have gotten the win anyway.

The two "best" hitters on the team are Edwin Jackson and Bryce Harper.  A pitcher and a rook.  That is a dagger.  Although LaRoche came back and hit another bomb.

Ryan Zimmerman came back to the lineup and batted third, moving Bryce Harper to 2nd.

Another one in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night.  Happening during the Caps game...so....

Where Drew Storen At!?
