The Nationals improved their record to 4-5 by beating the Mets 7-3 in 11 innings. Laynce Nix (I was as surprised as you were...) hit a game deciding 3-run home run after the Nationals took the lead on a Pudge Rodriguez single. The "Sharked-up" relief pitchers continued their late inning dominance with 5 scoreless innings. It was a good win, and we all hope they can carry over the momentum back home.
RicK AnKiel returned to form today with an 0 for 6 showing. The Great Werth had a 0-4 day and Mako Morse was the only starting outfielder with a hit as he went 1-4. Following the game, the three of them stepped to the corner of the locker room and played Paper-Scissors-Shark to see who would "volunteer" to go to the minors in order to bring the Bernadina up. For whatever reason, AnKiel didn't choose Shark once (which eats everything and therefore wins every time) as Werth and Morse did. Rick was last seen packing his bags and muttering about how badass the "BMW Outfield" sounds
Once again, Roger Bernadina did not play for Syracuse. It has become clear that without at least partially legitimate Shark news, this blog is pointless. I wish I could tell you when he would be playing again and where he has been, but I only have speculation. I ask you to just hang tight and keep regularly checking in (also, please continue accosting random people on the street, ordering them to check it out). The good news is that the Shark has been recently spotted by a Kalamazoo Valley Community College, Astronomy 101 class and is apparently still in baseball form.
Note: Starting Tuesday, the Nationals kick off a series against the Phillies. This is going to be a big test for the Shark-less Nats to prove if they can compete with the Big 4 and the potent Phillies lineup. It's also a test for Nationals and Shark fans alike to show up and hopefully embarrass the worst fans in America. Get there and fill the seats. Trust me, there is no better sound than that of a Phillies fans' heart breaking. @TyInDC will be there in shark garb, so keep your eyes peeled.
Finally, let us all now join hands and pray that the Nats call up Roger "The Shark" Bernadina to help devour the dimwitted arrogance that is the Philadelphia Phillies.
More to come.
