Hammer The Nail, Nats

If John Patterson pitches the way he should've been pitching all along, you've gotta think that Charlie Manuel won't be managing over the weekend, especially after the Manuel Boner in this game. Early in the game, he called for a righty reliever to face Michael Restovich before Restovich was entered into the game by the umpire. So Manny Acta got to send Robert Fick up as a PHer without having to waste Restovich's bat.

And as the way things tend to go when you're a team that decides that having your ace starter be a reliever is a good strategy, Restovich's 13th-inning double set up Felipe Lopez' game-winning sac fly.

Bang! Zoom! We're not even the second worst team in baseball anymore!
