Fueled again by the Shark's presence, the Nationals pulled out an impressive come from behind 7-4 victory over the (formerly known as) Braves.  This game had it all (or some)!  It began as a pitching duel between John Lannan and Tommy Hanson.  Then, after falling behind 3-1, the Nats scored 2 in the ninth to tie the game, then, as if dropping a stick of dynamite in the water, blew the Braves apart with a 4-run 11th. They are now an impressive 3-1 since recalling the Shark from AAA Syracuse.

The Shark, despite going 0-3, played better than his line looks.  Bernadina hit the ball hard twice, and was robbed of what could have been and inside-the-park home run by Kevin James (Eric Hinske).  The ball looked like it was going to drop until Hinske hopped on his Segway and with this unfair advantage, tracked down the ball.  Watch out, Kevin James!  Having a Shark for an enemy isn't going to make your movies any better.

Eric Hinske drives after Roger Bernadina's long drive.
Todd Coffey, who is known these days as the Megalodon Pitcher, continued his strike out prowess with 4 more Ks today.  That gives him 10 Ks in his last 4.2 innings... ridiculous.  The man is clearly sharked up and when a big man like that is sharking up, heads (and eyes) will roll.

Question of the Day:
@StacheOBally asks, "do sharks grow, feed on, or admire mustaches?"
Answer: They wear them only when disguising as a human baseball player (and at costume parties, naturally).

I thought there was a Great White Shark coming, but it's clearly just a mustached gentleman.
More to come.
