Start? Quality.

That's right. Matt Chico leaves in favor of pinch hitter Dmitri Young in the bottom of the sixth, who promptly drives in a run, then his pinch runner (remember comrade Dmitri is a morbidly obese diabetic alcoholic wifebeater) scores the go-ahead run and now Matt Chico is in line for the win.

Final Line: 6 IP, 5 H, 3ER, 2 BB, 1 K.

Washington Nationals bullpen, you're on notice!

7th: Billy Traber shuts them down.
8th: Jesus Colome follows in Billy Traber's footsteps, which typically would not be a compliment.

I am writing this in the bottom of the 8th. I think it would be totally awesome if Matt Chico re-emerged in the bottom of the 9th in a Bobby Valentine-esque disguise to get the save. I feel that will not happen. No, it's Jon Rauch. He is tall.

And victory!

Matt Chico is now 3-4 on the season. He is really good.
