Nats rally falls short OR Braves almost beat selves

Despite losing to the Braves 6-4, the Nats actually had some chances tonight, mostly gifts in the form of errors by the Braves, but they did rally in the 7th.

The biggest problem they had was getting down so early behind the shaky pitching of Jerome Williams. He settled down, but the damage was done.

I liked the bullpen outings of Bowie, Wagner and Colome. Jon Rauch, alas, allowed the back-breaking run.

Ryan Report: Not much to say. Zimmerman went 1-4, Church went 0-4.

Lots of errors and some late inning drama, which ultimately proved insufficient, but I'm not discouraged. I think that the Nats are proving to be really scrappy. I'll bet that they take at least one from the Phillies.
