See! Not that hard! A game gained already!
Also please please please I'm asking very nicely before I get mad, don't take these games in Colorado, in the high altitude and against pretty awful pitching, as an indication of anything in itself. Maybe it will get the bats on track. That would be great. But we'll find that out when the Nats get back home. You can score 30 runs in Colorado and it's meaningless. Don't act like the Nats offense or any particular player is "back" because of a few good nights here.
Is Rendon, who missed the last two games, not 100%? Probably. Does that mean we see Turner, who tried out second the other day, up in the majors soon? Possibly. Probably because sitting Rendon, who wasn't slumping as badly as Werth and actually offers other things to the team, doesn't quite make sense. Possibly because Espinosa has been playing pretty well and you don't bring up Turner unless you are going to play him. You don't start the clock for insurance.
Strasburg! Wooo! Apparently he had to suck all the pitching skill out of the rest of the rotation to do it, but he certainly looks back.
No Storen in the 8th... interesting. If you aren't going to use him in the 8th though... why not just trade him?
