Ryan Zimmerman hurts hamstring as Washington Nationals rally past Colorado Rockies – The Post
Nats show grit, but no one’s watching – Nats Insider
Lefty John Lannan got off to a shaky start last night, giving up 3 runs before through 3 innings. The Washington Nationals caught up quickly and took a 4-3 lead over the Colorado Rockies in the bottom of the 3rd. The Rockies added another run off of Lannan in the 4th, but he settled down and the score remained tied eighth inning. Wil Nieves (who?) doubled Josh Willingham home for the game-winner. Ivan Rodriguez sacrificed Adam Kennedy home for the final run.
Matt Capps got his 7th save in 7 tries with even after putting the lead run on with 2 outs. Final score 6-4, Nats.
Tyler Clippard got his third win of the season to lead the staff.
The Nats have won every game that a starter last through five innings. Those 8 games are the only ones they have won. They are above .500 again at 8-7 and have assured themselves at least a split series against the Colorado. They can take the series with a win today, first pitch 4:35 p.m. Yay, day-ish baseball!
3B Ryan Zimmerman doubled, but pulled up lame at second base in the 7th inning — he says it was a right hamstring cramp. We’ll see.
Another night, another attendance low (DC Sports Bog). Bad weather and the Capitals are not helping matters — it is what it is. I’m going to weeknight games either.
Let Teddy Win and We Love DC were helping attendance though.
