    Good thing the Nats were in Cincy this weekend. If this series was in DC the next two days would probably be hurricaned out.

    BTW. Weather last night in S. Fla was fine. A few wind gusts, but nothing spectacular.
    They could have played.

    lead-off walk, likely to haunt.

"If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Nats squander scoring opportunity in the third on failed stolen base attempt. Still 1-0 in favor of the Reds.

    Willis already at 60 pitch-count having yielded three walks and two hits in the first three frames. Wang also having control issues, and now walks Bruce on four pitches. It his third walk as well.

    Stubbs strikes out for the second time, stranding Bruce at first base. Reds ahead 1-0 going into the fourth.

    Willis walks Espinosa on four pitches. Gomes up for the Nats.

    Gomes singles. Two Nats on, none out.

    Willis gets out of the inning with no further damage, but he's not looking sharp at all. He's not only wild but hittable. Reds now trail 3-1. Willis at 81 pitches after just four innings.

    Willis doubles, collecting his second hit of the game. He now has two of the Reds' three hits, the other belonging to Phillips. Willis stranded. Reds still down 3-1.

    Dontrelle is 2-2 with a single and long double. I know dusty would cringe at the thought, but there's no way Janish should be hitting in front of Willis.
