It gets worse

It’s not just bad pitching. It’s not just losing. It’s playing the game with an excruciatingly disastrous amount of ineptness.

The No. 2 starter, Shawn Hill, did better than the “ace.” But that’s not saying much. Hill went 5 innings, giving up 5 runs (4 earned). The bullpen comes behind him, pitches 4 innings, giving up 4 earned runs. It wasn’t a save opportunity, but still, Cordero gives up 2 runs over one inning.

Other lowlights:

  • Dmitri Young finally gets his first error of the season.
  • Nats could only muster 5 hits.
  • Cristian Guzman has been put on the DL. (Actually, this could be considered a highlight, but there’s nothing else to highlight so I refuse – refuse – to create a “highlights” section today. Maybe some day.)
