Sharkingly, the Nationals played another see-saw game... but managed to pull out a victory, beating the Houston Astros 5-2 last night.  It was the first game of the season that the Shark had faced the stars, but only needed a couple of innings to adjust.  He ended the game 1-3 with a walk, BUT his one hit came at a very important juncture during the game. With the game tied at two in the top of the ninth, the Shark led off the inning with a roped single.  His presence on the basepaths then inspired the rest of the inning to fall into place, with Ryan Zimmerman (who had a big game with a HR + 2 RBIs) bringing Bernadina in on a single to take the lead.

Mako Morse had a nice game as well, unleashing the Beast inside, and going 3-4.  Mako and the Shark combined to go 4 for 7 with a walk, 3 runs, and a HR.  The combined Shark Power contributed to more than half of the offense.  It was clear to see they were on the same page for most of the game whenever they high fived.

The Nationals continue their 3 game series with the Houston Astros tonight.  The Shark has ventured into space before, so he knows what to expect.  Something tells me this is going to be a delicious road trip...

A word of the wise, Astros MGMT, don't fly too close to the ground...

More to come.
