The Baseball Desert

Brad Wilkerson made history last night by becoming the first-ever Nationals player to hit for the cycle (for the second time in his career), a feat which helped his team to a 7-3 win over the Phillies. We're still in that early-season mode where almost everything the Nats do is a first something-or-other, but (with apologies to Tom & Tom) it was nice to see them get this crucial one ("first win") under their belt.

The Nats close out the series in Philly tonight. It's another 1:05pm ET start, which will allow me to see my fifth game in as many days. Only in "MLB.TV World" could I get off to a sparkling 5-for-5 start!
