Well That Sucked - Nationals 8, Phillies 1

Not exactly the same as Cliff Lee's first outing for the Phils.  And to add insult to injury . . . this.

New acquisition Roy Oswalt was less than inspiring, pitching six innings and allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits.

The evening got off to an ominous start when leadoff hitter Nyjer Morgan stroked the first pitch he saw into right field for a triple.  He would score on an RBI groundout.  The Nationals would tack on another run in the third thanks to some poor defense... Greg Dobbs forgetting to cover third base on a ball bunted two feet in front of the plate, that catcher Carlos Ruiz airmailed into left field.

The Phillies offense was even more dreadful, with its sole run coming on a Jayson Werth solo home run in the top of the seventh.  The Phillies only collected five more hits all night.

Roy, get 'em next time.  Duds happen.  Roy Halladay has bad games.  Deep breaths, everyone.
