Roger "The Shark" Bernadina was back in the starting lineup, playing centerfield for the Nationals today. With the exception of an at-bat and a couple innings in the outfield during Sunday's game, the Shark had the weekend off. The extra rest did some good. The Shark went 1 for 2 with a game tying RBI (it was from a walk...but still counts) during today's 14-9 trouncing of the Houston Astros. Using his 'Usain Bolt'-esque speed, Shark led off the game with a bunt, then promptly stole second base. His stats in the leadoff spot have been sparkling this spring and I look forward to seeing him play there in the regular season.
One thing is sure, Shark can bunt.
More to come.
