Our long Nationals nightmare is over...The Shark finally got a hit last night! He is now 1-17, which is a batting average of .059, but he's moving in the right direction. After his hit, new Nationals #2 Denard Span drove old Nationals #2 (Bernadina) in with a triple, sealing the Nats 8-1 victory behind Gio's dominant pitching.
After the game, Brandon Phillips went to congratulate Bernadina, but The Shark's high five was a little overzealous. Here's a photo of the incident:
We are bringing a group of 25 Shark fans to the game tonight, turning the Scoreboard Walk into a Shark Tank! If you're at the game, swim on over and say Hi!
More to come.
