Washington NationalsJason SimontacchiJohn PattersonMark Zuckerman:From Ted in Alexandria:Mark Zuckerman:From Mike H. in Silver Spring:Billy TraberMark Zuckerman:In-Game Update No. 1: John Patterson just struck out the first two batters of the game on a total of seven pitches, then got Magglio Ordonez to line out to right on four more. Yeah, I don’t think there’s much reason to be concerned about him. Heading to the bottom of the first here against the Tigers, no score.From Robert in Springfield, VA:Mark Zuckerman:From Chris in Fairfax:Mark Zuckerman:In-Game Update No. 2: Not much doing for the Nats in the bottom of the first. Zimmerman drew a two-out walk off lefty Nate Robertson, but that was it. Still scoreless. Oh, and by the way, it’s NASA Day here at aptly named Space Coast Stadium. The first pitch was thrown out by a guy in a full moon suit. Managed to get it in the general vicinity of the plate. No word whether the Nats will be offering him the No. 5 spot in the rotation.From Lisa in Springfield, VA:Dmitri YoungMark Zuckerman:From Brent in Burke:Mark Zuckerman:In-Game Update No. 3: We’re in the top of the third now, still scoreless. Both Patterson and Robertson cruising along. Nice crowd on hand at Space Coast Stadium, including esteemed blogger and frequent Live Chat questioner “Miss Chatter.” So that’s why my inbox is so empty today…From Gary Fogel in Washington:Mark Zuckerman:From Felix Van der Vaart in Alexandria:Nick JohnsonMark Zuckerman:From Pincus in Burtonsville:Mark Zuckerman:And on that note, I think we’ll adjourn for the day. Nats now leading 2-0 in the bottom of the third thanks to an RBI triple from Nook Logan (hitting from the right side of the plate, mind you). Thanks for your questions, and check back in when we get back to D.C. for our regular in-season live chats. So long for now…
