Over-extended bullpen yields 4-0 lead, Astros lose

Natssuck_medium

Brian Moehler came in like a lion, and exited like a guy who ran out of gas. This was not an opportune time for that to happen, either. Our bullpen just couldn't handle a fourth consecutive game of extreme over-use. The top of the order hit well, but an early four run lead wasn't near enough as the Nats ran off nine unanswered runs to close this game out.

An noon game tomorrow features Roy O vs. new National, Scott Olsen.
