Post-Game 140 Thread: Kuroda Can't Decipher Morse

NATIONALS 7, DODGERS 2

Hiroki Kuroda gave up four home runs to the Nationals (including a pair of homers to Nats 1B Michael Morse), which doomed the Dodgers as early as the bottom of the first inning (when three of the Nats' HR struck, giving Washington a 4-1 lead after one). Kuroda, now 11-15, is all but guaranteed a losing record this season.

But it's not like it's all Hiro's fault; the Dodger offense pitched in with its typical lack of run support during his starts, reverting to its pre-August state. Matt Kemp doubled in Jamey Carroll in the first inning for his 106th RBI (one behind league-leaders Prince Fielder and Ryan Howard), and Justin Sellers doubled in A.J. Ellis in the top of the ninth. But that's all, folks. Dodgers will have to scramble to capture our sixth straight series (this is a four-game series in the District).

That's a kick-ass Morse decoder right there.
