For He Is the Pirate King: Strasburg K’s 13 Pirates, Slays the Rest

Two pirates named Kevin who never beat their opponents

Finale Score: Nationals 4, Pirates 2

Dame of the Game:

Stephen Strasburg: 6 IP, 1 ER, 5 H, 3 BB, 13 K. In his major league debut nearly two years ago, Strasburg struck out 14 Pirates. HOW FAR THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN

Shame of the Game:

Ian Desmond: 0-5. Didn’t do anything remarkably horrible, but he did fail five times in five chances. That’s at least fairly shameful, right? Besides, I don’t like him.


Kevin Correia struts with to center stage, looking arrogant but mildly confused.


Better far to live and die

Under the black and yellow flag I fly,

Than play as a sanctimonious Nat

Final Score: Pirates 4, Nationals 2.

Dame of the Game:

Ross Detwiler: Loss, 6 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 4 K. Detwiler’s average line was the best thing any Nationals could accomplish tonight, as the rest of the team stood at a point on that line very near Mendoza. Bad average aside, the dude is really grabby, and nobody wants to be near him.

Shame of the Game: 

The Nationals Offense with RISP: 1-8. With just 10 baserunners tonight, the Nationals managed to have 8 opportunities with RISP, yet only came through once, with a .125 average in those chances. I haven’t seen that bad an average since Mario Mendoza! Oh wait, I used him already.

What can you say about losing to the Pirates two straight games in a row other than, “Oh so you were using both controllers while playing a video game and let the Pirates win? Makes sense.” Only you can’t say this about this series, the Nationals have actually lost two games in a row to the Pirates. With a walkoff loss last night, and an embarrassing offensive performance tonight, the Nationals have dropped even further in the standings from tied for first place with a .620 win percentage to tied for first place with a .600 win percentage. Noooooooo!
