Yesterday was a good day for the Nationals.

No game, therefore no loss. (Too soon?)
Tonight marks the beginning of a three-game series against the hapless Orioles. Here's hoping The Nationals find out which end of the bat does the hitting this weekend; the O's are on track to match the 1962 Mets, and it seems a shame to interrupt their rendezvous with destiny. Yes, I do carry grudges; why do you ask?

Moving right along, Hagerstown and Potomac were back in action last night, both posting wins; Syracuse and Harrisburg didn't. Details from Brian at NFA; also, the Nationals are making good progress signing their draftees.

The Nats blogosphere's been talking a lot about the Nationals' offensive woes. Natsstats over at Federal Baseball goes a little deeper.

The Bears avoided a sweep last night in St. Charles, pummeling Blue Crabs starter (and former Royal) Dan Reichert for six runs in the first inning on their way to an 11-3 win. Tonight's game is the start of a three-game set against the Somerset Patriots (33-26), managed by former Yankees closer Sparky Lyle. The Patriots have a one-game lead in the season series so far. Tonight's game is also Redskins Night, featuring Chief Zee and the Hogettes and Redskins-themed jerseys that will be auctioned off during the game.

Over in the O's farm system, the Baysox avoided a sweep as well, downing the Reading Phillies 6-3; they'll continue their road trip tonight in the first of three games at Altoona. The Keys, on the other hand, fell to Winston-Salem 7-4.

Elsewhere in baseball, there's a good interview with Craig Wright at . (h/t Rob Neyer)
