The Nationals looked like little leaguers last night.
You remember that team in little league only cared about hitting, and they would rake a few bombs but could not field to save their life…kicking the ball in the infield and throwing the ball away in the outfield.
Yup, that was the Nationals last night; Four errors, three unearned runs, and a 6-2 loss against the last place Padres.
Dunn, Bard, Mock and Bergmann were the culprits Friday night.
Unfortunately for the Nats the starting pitching was perfect either. Garret Mock continued to hid his Triple-A form as he allowed nine hits in five innings, giving up a bomb and five runs, three earned.
The bullpen once again redeemed itself however. Bergmann, Villone, Burnett, and Kensing combined for four innings without an earned run.
At the plate both Guzman and Zimmerman busted out of their slumps. The two both went 2-4 with a homer each, both solo. The rest of the lineup only combined for two hits and three walks. It was an ugly night.
