Nice trend

Tonight's game was the second straight good performance by a Nationals' starting pitcher. This time it was Matt Chico--five innings, 4 hits, 1 earned run, and 97 pitches. The Nats' offensive outburst--five runs--cemented the win for Chico. Before we get too excited, though, look at the part of the pitching line we left out--five walks and no strikeouts. That's a distinct lack of dominance, and it portends future trouble for Mr. Chico.
