My God…are we really going to have to look at Donald Trump ads throughout this series? Yes, Hillary is coming after your guns! Spare me.
Bottom of the 3rd.
6:38 p.m. – BRYCE! Double! Good start for Harper.
6:42 p.m. – Werth grinds out a walk. Kershaw over 50 pitches with one out in the 3rd. If you can’t beat him, wear him out. Nice double steal. Gets two R.I.S.P.
6:49 p.m. – ANTHONY! N-A-T-S, Nats, Nats, Nats, Woo! X2. That man can hit. 4-2 Dodgers and Kershaw is up to 60 pitches in the 3rd. Get in that bullpen.
6:51 p.m. – Zimmerman is 2-2! Keep the line moving.
6:55 p.m. – And I have the same question I had at 6:14 p.m…why is Espinosa still playing? The guy is the ultimate rally killer. Seldom makes contact. Jeez.
7:00 p.m. – I want to say that I’ve always loved Dusty. No matter what happens this year (and I have low expectations), he’s been great for the Nats and for Washington. He’s just having fun.
7:02 p.m. – 1-2-3 4th inning by Max. Let’s keep pilling up the pitches on Kershaw and chipping away at that lead.
7:07 p.m. – Pedro Severino! Lead-off double. Let Max (the RBI machine) hit!
7:10 p.m. – Scherzer does the job! Trea Turner has to get that R.I.S.P. in! Especially since they are playing back in the infield.
7:12 p.m. – And we’re back within 1! Sac fly Turner. Nicely done all the way around. 4-3 Dodgers in the bottom of the 3rd, with Harper coming up.
7:14 p.m. – Okay, ump. Harper will let you know when it is a strike. Don’t expand that zone for Kershaw.
7:15 p.m. – And we’re at the end of 4. Candice is fixing the hot dogs! What could be better for a ballgame?!
7:21 p.m. – Where is the producer in this game? Please tell Harold to stop talking! He’s taking over the Tim McCarver chair.
7:22 p.m. – Seven straight set down, and we are through 4 1/2. Keep up the pressure, Nats. 4-3 Dodgers going to the bottom of the 5th.
7:26 p.m. – Jayson gets it going in the 5th with a 2-strike single. Fear the beard.
7:30 p.m. – Kershaw is pushing 100 pitches. This has to be his last inning. And Anthony just comes through again. What did I say…a hitting machine!
7:31 p.m. – Zim seems to be getting his stroke back. Just missed a HR here. But…the rally killer is coming up. Come on Danny…prove me wrong!
7:38 p.m. – But he doesn’t. What’s that question again?
