Nats and Chiefs both lose 2-1

First off, did you vote for Sharkadina yet today?  You can just click the handy badge directly to the right of this text.  Go ahead, do it now, I'll wait....

THANK YOU!  We know that a lot of those blogs nominated are awesome and very informational, but are any of them as strange or specific as ours?  I didn't think so, and doesn't that count for something in the blogging world?  Now, onto the news...

The Shark went 2-3 last night, but had a mixed night running the bases.  He had 1 SB, but was also caught stealing and picked off during the game.  The Chiefs were being aggressive in the close game, but they ended up on the losing end of the pitchers duel, 2-1.  Roger Bernadina's AVG is now .252 and Brad Peacock takes the mound tonight in the third game of the series against the Braves.

Meanwhile, back in DC, the Sharkless-Nationals lost by the same score.  We've lost a lot of 1 run games this year, but this was particularly painful.  Ryan Zimmerman led off the bottom of the 9th with a solo home run and the next few batters managed to load the bases with only one out.  All Wilson "The Buffalo" Ramos had to do was hit a sac fly and the game would be tied.  I'll give you one guess on what actually happened: game ending double play goundball to second on the first pitch.  Nats fans everywhere went from excited to depressed in exactly . 63 seconds.

Well, I have some news that might cheer you up!  Nats Manager Davey Johnson listed Roger Bernadina as a potential September call-up!  Here is the quote, from Federal Baseball:

Still it was a surprise to many when Nats' Skipper Davey Johnson, in mentioning the names of potential September call-ups like outfielders Corey Brown and Roger Bernadina, middle infielder Stephen Lombardozzi, first baseman Chris Marrero and pitchers Tom Milone, Brad Peacock, Craig Stammen, Yunesky Maya and Atahualpa Severino, mentioned that Michael Morse might spend some time in left field to allow Marrero to get a look at first and allow Morse to prepare for next season when Adam LaRoche is likely to return at first. 
 That's right everybody...gear up for SHARKTEMBER!

More to come...
