DODGERS 2, NATIONALS 0
Well, lads and lasses, our Boys in Blue came through with the win today and, thusly, the sweep over the previously red-hot Nationals. We've now swept three teams already this season. We're a league best 16-6, our best start since 1981.
Fans of great pitching loved this game, while the rest of us napped. Dodgers move to ten games over .500 and the Sons-attended games record moves to 7-0. Good work out there today, Nomo-san! James Loney provided today's only offense (!!! - how many times has that ever been said?) today, so the game ball goes to him. MVP and Ethier are merely reloading to get ready for the upcoming road trip. Excellent outing from Chris Capuano today; another 15 starts like that and I might start giving him mild praise.
Oh yeah, this Bryce Harper guy played again today. He went 1-3 and made an amazing catch off the wall in deep left-center. Glad to see him debut at Dodger Stadium, but glad that he didn't do any major damage to us. The media wanted that to happen so badly.
On to Colorado, and let's win there!
