craig, staplen. 40 at bats. a lot of ribbing going on every day. that's a good thing. i like that. last year when i was playing four league. nobody stepped up and said enough is enough. i no they expect to play so with the all the time when they do kick a ball, they can just get by and get back to playing good, hard baseball. they are playing good baseball. there's punch rodriquez. he's a tone setter.
we had a good conversation before the league. he's fired up about it. that's the kind of. he's plaid 20 years and he can careless. he wants to careless. he plays hard. he doesn't care. he's going toly with a reckless abandon. they are going to say they don't want passenger or him to play all out, they are going to planar. that's like a coach in that dugout do. somebody is getting a hard time . way up in his foreharm. to be a fly on the arm right

major league baseball at people magazine individuals that make a difference. nominate go to people's.com. that was a very nice ceremony they had for that last year, mlb is going to do it again of the here's coglin. bounced off to guzman first time up. throws a strike. coghlan came from mississippi. came out of nowhere to be the rookie last year. this time of year ago he was at new orleans at the process of hitting .344. then he comes here and hits
comes autoand grabbing it. ramirez now with a pitcher at first base and two outs. ask ability the nats. we'd love to get your e-mail questions and talk about them opt air. acknowledge nats fans have been a food job with that this far. if you care about bob carpenter you'd appreciated that. , if you have movie questions ask them to rob dibble. ramirez deep left center. not going to get there. nats get a bad break as the ball hit the wall and stays in play. that gives the pitcher a chance to score to tie the game.
for ramirez that's only his 8th rbi. >> not a lot 6 table at the timing going around in front of hip. pitcher had to get that. drill it to the deepest part of the park, chris has to come around to score. >> the other thing about that ball. in most ballparks that's a home run. that ball hit about 415 or 420 feet from home plate. the leading rbi in the plate is up. here again as we're standing needs to be smart. them guy is a much tougher out now. in fact, coming into this game, impinged he has a five game hitting streak but he's hit # 2 of the 23 mar libs games this

back to work, kind after mix bag so far. squeezed in the second inning. that ball stayed in the ballpark. a bit of a break there. >> should be #-1. got lucky there. a little bit of that each this. we'll eventually get the stat. i don't see him overmatching our guys. we're sitting pretty now. >> two, three, and four hitters at bat. >> any time you can get ramirez to hit that double, he swung so easily, this is hit out to center field. he's gym to haul it in >> fly bawls are easy it find. kennedy is retired. top of the fourth underway. zimmerman and dunn next two.
coming from the 6-8 right hander who steps off as west des moines issueman steps off. stapper over the mound. ryan is going to get it out. take it easy on your cool town. even if he fields that ball i think zimmerman would have beat it out. but a couple of hearts beating on them win. >> any time he's going to have to dig for first basion, you worry about the hamstrings. he used all 6 his frame to try and get up and catch that ball. continue do it. >> zimmerman has four hits in
the series. been on base 5 times here comes adam. shift is on, they leave him at shortstop. we look to the right of the umpire. that's the shortstop right there. leaving it there. best arm in the infield. put him first base over on the first base side. they figure if he pulls the ground ballute want him turning the bubble play not a third baseman who hasn't done much. he can do that because he played shortstop an is such a god athlete. 1-1 to adam. help just got jammed in the air
for cody ross. which former mar lens reliever surrendered his first career grand slam? >> i think i know that one. >> matt. oh, no. he's out of the game for a few years. right hander kevin greg. weem see. first time up, great at bat. set up the play by rodriquez. hitting a battle to right center. sent him from second to third.
he then got the look bion a drive to right field. foul ball, got it. nats are gone in the fop of the fourth inning. good battle shaping up here. 1-1 in the fourth. finish see the high life is about celebrating, not separating. we are coming for your vip's and we ain't the paparazzi. we are looking for the little fuzzy rope, uh huh.
how you doing, yea we're not on that. i guarantee that. excuse us. thank you so much. paying extra money so other people can't sit next to you. you know where i come from we party together... with a good honest beer at a tasty price. a fuzzy rope that makes ya'll feel more important. uh uh. common sense ain't on the guest list. these people know how to do it. that's it, hey!
on to the bottom of the fourth. marlins john baker cody ross 1- 1 game. zimmerman came up and hit .397 in 06. didn't get the first grand slam until 07. april # #nd. part of my file i cope here. >> 20 days heat at home at rfk he had a game ending gram slam against the marlins. i think later in the season was it the fourth of the up? he had another walk off hit and the legend of born. dan walked first time up.
good breaking ball by stallmon. 0-2. by the way 20th time that a player's first two home runs of the year's were grand slams. loved that 0-2 pitch. uggla is a diver. both guys are deeing over to direct the outside part. how do you like few minutes now? most guys don't question affected by that pitch. iambic with a slider away. not even throes. that's how it sets that up; because he >> hesitate and step towards third base on the swing. 0-# pitch, throw a slider down
and way, and ugh la is going i don't league him right you. that's pitching. >> he took the plate and command 6 him. here's maker who singled up the middle that time. he's had a lot of 0-#s. got some great command tonight. >> shaping up as a good command tonight. only 54 pitches, 34 strikes. giving up two hits. he's at the age 626, nats 12 rounder back in 05, codys are waitings here. 1-1. doesn't get many hilts but
>> lobbiest works again. 3-2. 3-1. not the worst type top throw a fastball that we talked about. you have to believe that the hitters are going to get themselves out both times. you can't always think i'm going to get every guy out. sometimes let them get themselves out . marlins had a 3- game losing streak. 5-6 here at home. baker hacks one out of play, left side corner. nationals, i
don't know how to react to this one, 6-4 on the road. how good does that field feel? 5-5 against the east. he made him earn his game aboard with one out on the fourth. wrap up this series tomorrow, 1:00, josh johnson and john that will be a good matchup. braves come in and leave on on tuesday, tommy on wednesday and scott against hudson on thursday. >> tommy looked fantastic last night. great breaking ball as we know. 95 as we know heater. fete a
fast balls. well-placed fast ball under the chin or right at the hips left side is a little bit further back. sanchez takes a big swing. fouls tips. give cody a lot of credit too. as you can when you have no fear, they are going it give him a double and third on the flow. triple. triple on that but who cares. that's their official score. change it to a triple.
that pitch wasn't much different than the one dan had no chance of reaching. he had been moving off the plate the previous pitch. marlins quickly have five hits again. when he does give up the contact, two games to baker, caution on the water a good changeup and slider and curve ball. once again you can't stick to this game plan. sometimes you have to deaf yet and say i've had enough of you. it's not a i keep saying you don't give him so much respect be you've giving him so much respect. morgan grabs another within that's not good base running. now the throw gets away.
they are going to score unless the tag is made. he had to throw the ball right at somebody. let's hope he's injured. that's going to be an error after a very good catch. >> it's a great catch. he's on the run. tries to make a throw to the plate. goes to the back stop. watch his leg. looks like it hits him in the chest. maybe just knocked the wind out of him. gets that lig up. did get him until the thigh. watch the stake spike coaching in. thing that hurts about that
play. he many come down the marine e- line, had been surprised he caught the ball, he was not tagging, and only came home when it started nagging around the back stop. that's a brutal throw that might have got your starting catcher hurt. now you got a guy getting mississippi knee jammed at home plate that didn't need to be done. >> if he throws the ball, the runner is still sitting at third and the pitcher is coming up. costlier or, marlins lead 2-1. particular see he's in no man's land, now the throw has to be caught by somebody, but he misses home plate by 20 to 235 immediate feet. here comes the runner and
evidently he's okay. nats making 2 errors tonight, that one costing them a run. he'll walk it off a bit. >> here's ross, playing hard baseball as the billion is thrown to the back stop. looks like his right knee went knee to knee. watch it underneath ross the other knee goes knee to knee. ross' shin he's hurt too. >> really sloppy play starting the movant of may off for the
relationship between rodriquez and him is outrageous. the key has been to keep the lines of communication open. i told him since day one. anything, whatever you need to tell me, feel free, come and talk to me. and that's good. you know, always it's good to have a relationship with him like that. to help the team. that's the most important thing. >> he told me too he really appreciates his desire to win of the he's impressed especially at home he goes out and does his fair share of fundament tags. >> many, many years much girls, and he's going to rob him of a

three right has beeners. we've said that he likes the # hole. >> anywhere else and he told me this once that if you bat him anywhere but the two hole he's a different hitter. that's exactly what he said. if you bat him somewhere else, we're stupid. certain guys don't reich to see it or be put down the bottom of the order. he sames to be app guy that flourishes in the two hole, but he's got so many different guys to help the ball club win. he's get to suck it up and try
