2011 April 8
by Don Hammack

Record: 3-4. Standing: Tied 4th, 2 GB. Streak: W2.

Win

Feeling good: Jordan Zimmermann got another good start under his belt, and added a two-RBI single to give himself the lead in the second. The Nats bullpen expanded its roster of contributors to include Doug Slaten and Chad Gaudin, then got another stellar performance from Tyler Clippard to get out of a seventh inning pinch. The team went 3-for-9 with RISP, and Ivan Rodriguez got his first hit of the regular season.

Feeling bad: Ian Desmond puts up an 0-for-5 as the leadoff struggle continues.

Feeling shame: Shame struck out today.

Nationals or Natinals: Ohhh, baby, ‘O’. Nationals.
