Good afternoon, everyone! (At least for those of you on the East Coast. Out here in sunny San Diego, it’s still 11 a.m. Do I really have to leave town tomorrow? In case you hadn’t figured it out, I kind of like this place.) Anyways, the Nats will be looking for their first series victory of the season tonight, with rookie Matt Chico (a SoCal boy) trying to outpitch the Padres’ Clay Hensley and then hoping the Washington offense can cobble together some hits for a change. That wasn’t the case last night in a 3-0 loss. Three measly hits off Chris Young, ruining an effective outing by Shawn Hill (who was far more down on himself than he probably should have been).
