HOUSTON 4 Washington 3 (Boxscore) – CBS Sports
Nats’ Slip-Ups Lead to A Fall – The Post
Astros hand Nats second tight loss – The Wash. Times
Oh, that magic feeling – The Houston Chronicle
Bad fundamentals and worse pitching led to another one-run loss. Carlos Lee won it with a single off of Lastings Milledge glove in the ninth. Reliever Joel Hanrahan gets tagged with the loss after giving up five walks in 2 1/3 innings, though Jesus Colome was on the mound when Lee won the game.
The good news? Ryan Zimmerman hit two homer, accounting for all three Washington runs.
Also, Paul Lo Duca hurt his hand again. He got into an argument with some Astros fan on his way back to the dugout. Two of them were ejected. The upside of this is more Ice Cream (Wil Nieves)!
