This is what a combination of awesome pitching and capable offense is supposed to result in -- many wins against teams that you should beat. We're about to go face the Nationals for three games -- the worst team in baseball. If we can sweep them like we've swept the Mets for the last two series, then there really is some hope for the post-season. Even the pessimist in us should think that there could be a glimmer of hope.
Tim Hudson was Derek Lowesque tonight, but that, apparently, is good enough for wins this season.
