Nats Hit Bombs, Crush Rockies

Nationals 11, Rockies 5

The Nationals bats stayed alive post-rally napkin scoring 11 runs in Colorado on Wednesday night in an 11-5 win over the Rockies.  Both teams had 14 hits...interesting.

The Nats started out slow scoring an unearned run in the first.  But in the 2nd & 3rd innings the Nats scored a combined 7 runs, the highlights being homeruns by Tyler Moore, Ryan Zimmerman, and Ian Desmond.

For the rest of the offensive output set aside 30 minutes, grab the box score, and read through it.  I don't have enough characters to cover it.

Jordan Zimmermann picked up the win after pitching 7 innings giving up only 1 run on 8 hits.  Can you believe it, J-Zimm got run support. What is happening!

Wang came in the 8th and gave up 2 runs, Mike Gonzalez gave up 2 more in the 9th.

Nats fans are getting excited and it is a great thing that the bats are coming alive, but wins like the past two have to be kept in perspective.  The Rockies are the worst team in baseball.  Their pitching staff was so bad that the manager switched over to an insane 4 man rotation and it caused the pitching coach to quit.  And a lucky rally napkin appeared.  Good wins & good offense, but the Nationals will have to keep the efforts up outside of Coors Field.

Series finale tomorrow afternoon (3:10pm) Nats look to take the series and keep the O going...
