The season is arduously long and these nights will happen. The Washington Nationals will stumble when an opposing pitcher catches lightning and suffocates their scalding offense. Their pitchers will dominate for large swaths of the game only to make a few mistakes that change the game. So far this season, such slip-ups have occurred less often than not.
Edwin Jackson plowed through the New York Mets' lineup Saturday night with a cutting fastball and devastating slider, striking out a season-high 11 batters, only to falter by allowing a two-run home run in the seventh. The Nationals' offense, baseball's highest-scoring in the second half of the season, could muster only five hits and push one hitter past second base. And as a result, Washington fell to the Mets, 2-0, before a packed house at Nationals Park.
