(The Nationals bullpen, pictured above)
Things were OK for a while, certainly. Daniel Cabrera (yes, the Daniel Cabrera) left after six with a 4-3 lead.
Then the bullpen took over.
Manny used five (5!) relievers for 2 innings: Hinckley 1/3, Kensing 2/3 (blown save, welcome to the club, Logan), Wells 1, newly annointed closer Julian Taverez 1/3 (5 runs), Gas Can Hanrahan 2/3 (two inherited runners scored.)
Totals for the game: 11 walks, 1 balk, 1 hbp, 3 unearned runs. Great game, guys.
Atsa some bullpen you bequeathed us, Jimbo. Have fun in LA.

Well, at least my nephew Eric had a good time at the game. Happy birthday, Eric!
