Nationals 6, Blue Jays 2

Tyler Moore came into the ballgame with 0 RBIs but it didn't stop him from driving in 5 runs on Wednesday afternoon in the Nationals 6-2 victory over the Blue Jays.  Moore's power along with 8 strikeouts by Stephen Strasburg (first to 100K on the season) led the Nats to their second consecutive sweep of a team from the AL East (you're welcome O's).

Moore had a 2 run ground rule double in the 2nd, his first career Major League home run in the 4th, a 2 run shot, and a 6th inning solo Papa John's Pizza shot to centerfield.  Moore has been ignored all season due to fellow rookie Bryce Harper, but he proved something today.

Strasburg pitched 6 innings of 5 hit baseball but was taken out before the 8th after only throwing 89 pitches.  It may have had to do with throwing 119 pitches against the Sox in his last start.  Davy mentioned something about a mis-trimmed fingernail.  One thing was certain, Strassy wasn't happy about it.  I can't imagine how happy he will be to sit out at the end of the year after the innings limit with the Nats in a pennant chase.  It isn't going to be pretty.

Ian Desmond had the Nats 6th RBI, a solo homer in the 8th...Lidge pitched very well for 3 batters...The Blue Jays got another homer from Bautista, but losing a starter early due to injury (5th inning) for the 2nd time in 3 games isn't a good look.

Take off your motherf**king pants the Nats have won 6 straight...The Nationals hit 8 homers in Toroto...Nats get Thursday off before coming back home to deal with the Skanks...
