Tonight’s attendance: 43,484.
Nationals center fielder Nyjer Morgan is having the game of his life tonight. He’s 4-for-4 with a double, RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base, he’s robbed Corey Patterson of a home run and he’s run down Miguel Tejada’s bases-loaded shot to left-center field.
He’s made a much better impression than the one he left back in D.C.
All three of the Orioles’ runs in the fifth were unearned after two errors by Nats shortstop Ian Desmond.
Are we really playing matchups in the fifth inning? Really, Jim Riggleman?
Nolan Reimold is starting again at first base tonight for Triple-A Norfolk. He’s 1-for-2 and was hit by a pitch.
Left-hander Troy Patton allowed six runs and nine hits in 5 1/3 innings.
