Wonders Never Cease!

Mr Acta pinch-hit for Detwiler in the top of the fifth. The Nationals were down, 5-1. To my mind, it was one of those mystifying Manny moves. The bullpen would leak a few more runs, and the Nationals would lose.

Amazing - five relief pitchers went out there, and the Phillies could not add a single more run! This is against the Washington Nationals' bullpen, the worst in the league.

And then the Nationals' bats woke up. They scored three more runs. The last four innings of the game were quite entertaining.

All of which is a long-winded way of saying that, although the Nationals lost, awarding a Goat of the Day seems churlish. Instead, I award a Pat on the Back to the chaps who took the mound last night.
