Nats win streak ends at 1 OR cheesesteak indigestion

I neither got to attend or see yesterday's afternoon game between the Nats and the Phillies, a 4-2 loss, but it doesn't appear that I missed much, unfortunately.

Poor John Patterson got behind early, and the Nats never really threatened until a 9th inning rally.

I'm not going to say that the Nats spent all of their emotion and energy on the field Wednesday night. Instead, I'll say that Phillies starter, 44 year-old Jamie Moyer was on top of his game, throwing 111 pitches through 8 innings and showed just why he's racked up 218 wins in his career. Good pitching always beats good hitting (and vice-versa).

Now they get to play in warm weather at last, in Florida, ironically just as the warm weather is arriving here in D.C.

Ryan Report: Church 1 for 4, Zimmerman 1 for 3 with a double.
