At-Bat # 1: He strikes out to end the inning with men on 1st and 2nd. Still on pace for record negative ERV! (I can laugh for now because we are up after the first!)
At bat #2: Flies out to start the inning. (We are down 3-2, can't laugh as much).
At-bat #3: Pop out with man on 1st to end the inning (up 4-3, so I can chuckle in a "oh, that Cristian" sort of way).
At-bat #4: Foul out with man on 1st to end inning (up 5-3, now 5-4, less chuckling).
At-bat #5: Lined out with men on 1st and second, one out (up 7-4 now, just sighs about it, but focused on closing the game out and going into the home opener above .500!!! CROSSING FINGERS!)
[DM Comment: Only Nats starter to not get a hit today. Even Ohka went 2 for 3.]
