you that opportunity to score, you make ground ball contact up the middle. just make contact up the middle. they're conceding the run. if they have everyone back. but you have to be able to look out there and kind of survey the field, see what everybody's giving you, see if they're shifting one way. if they're shifting one way, they're pitching you away, plan your way. it's all a matter of acquiring knowledge and then using that knowledge to your benefit. >> one guy martis did have success against tonight, only took him like 15 pitches to get rid of luke scott. struck him out a couple of times. >> we picked this match-up and ironically it worked out great. you should see when martis is effective. in the first inning, he throws a sinker to scott for the ball. he comes back with a running fastball away. then he throws the change-up and he swings at a bad ball. luke scott got himself out
there. it wasn't because martis threw great pitches. he takes that pitch for a ball, takes another pitch. trying to check himself. goes back, swings at a pitch up. comes back 3-1, checks the ball away and walks. comes around to the next at- bat. similar situation. he's aggressive. takes the change-up. comes back a fastball away. we miss a pitch and it comes back slider in. then the 2-2 pitch, he throws him a fastball. fouls it off and gets him with a slider off the bat part of the plate which was a great pitch. there was nothing you can do about that. you can see the good stuff that martis has. that change-up is devastating. the fastball has movement. the slider, he's able to do things with. but it's a matter of being able to throw those pitches into small spots and be acute with his location as opposed to being all over the place. >> somebody had a pretty good night tonight pitching for hagerstown, matt chico. manny acta still to come talking about tonight's loss to
the orioles. - oh, it's on. - it's on. it's on. - it's on. - oh, it's on, all right. - it's on. - it is totally on. jimmy, it's on. it's on. oh, yeah, it's on. pilot: affirmative, it's on. this is humiliating. stand still so we can get an accurate reading. okay...um...eighteen pounds and a smidge. a smidge? y'know, there's really no need to weigh packages under 70 pounds. with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service, if it fits, it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. cool. you know this scale is off by a good 7, 8 pounds. maybe five.
priority mail flat rate boxes only from the postal service. a simpler way to ship. when she gives me that look. when at last we're alone. when we both decide. announcer: today, guys with erectile dysfunction can be ready with another dosing option from cialis. cialis for daily use is a clinically proven low-dose tablet you take every day, so you can be ready anytime the moment is right. so relax and take your time. tell your doctor about your medical condition and all medications and ask if you're healthy enough for sexual activity. don't take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. don't drink alcohol in excess with cialis. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long term injury seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than 4 hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision stop taking cialis and call your doctor right away. announcer: today, you have options: cialis for daily use or 36-hour cialis.
ask your doctor if cialis is right for you, so when the moment is right, you can be ready. tonight syracuse got knocked off by pawtucket, that's a final. matt chico on the mound, he gives up no runs tonight. goes three innings. >> get three innings at a time. that's about 45, 50 pitches. >> the carolina league, 5-2, potomac wins, rooney goes 3 for 5 with a couple of runs driven in. in the gulf coast league update, a 5-3 win for the nats team down there against the mets, gulf coast league ball club. lastings milledge, 1 for 3 day. hood had a 3 for 5 day.
>> i want oh see this kid play. he's a guy from alabama that was a great football player committed to go to the university of alabama. didn't think he was going to wait or the second round. lastings, i'm hoping lastings is going to just break out and he was a big part of the future of this organization. last year. everybody thought he was going to be something special. and he got hurt and a little bit of discipline problem. see what happens. >> how about the subway series up in new york. the yankees against the mets tonight, top of the third, no score. nick swisher, solo homer off redding. top of the 6th, now 2-0 a couple of runners on. jorge posada with a three-run shot. the yankees up 5-0, that is the final. in atlanta, red sox and the braves, top of the first, vazquez strikes out david ortiz
swinging to end the inning. tim wakefield in the top of the first. bottom of the third, still scoreless, wake feel getting hernandez looking on a called strike three. boston shutting out atlanta, that final is 1-0. now, let's go to manny acta brought to you by verizon wireless talking about tonight's' loss to the orioles. >> i think it was the first one, because we had there on the ropes. wened up scoring one run after that and it was because of a loss. the first inning set the tone. i think at least we should have scored four runs in that inning. >> what did you think of martis tonight? >> i thought that he played with fire the whole game. and then finally ended up getting burned. he was pitching away from contact. he did have -- he pitched behind in the count the whole night and that really cost him. that's why he ended up throwing
98 pitches in five innings. >> it's obvious josh didn't see the ball, but did anybody think it was going out. >> i really didn't move even when i saw the hitting because i knew that the ball was out. i saw it all the way from the bench. >> any way if he had seen it immediately, do you think he could have -- >> not a chance. that ball was about three rows behind him. i don't think he could have made the play. it was out. a home run. the guy hate good pitch. we shouldn't put ourselves in that position. >> situational hitting, it's kind of been one of those things talked about this year. is it about a line-up had a can kind of change once it needs to face a clutch situation? >> well, it's been poor obviously, but tonight those guys got into those situations, they've been struggling the whole year. so that was kind of convenient. for them. but main thing, they got to take a step back and revisit that hitting approach that
we're having. we struck out again with the bases loaded. this is the fourth time in about the last two weeks. then we were ahead in the count and couldn't get the pitch that we wanted to drive the ball out of the infield. so they got to sit back, revisit that hitting approach and apply it. >> martis, a lot of times this year where he's been around the plate and that kind of thing. you keep preaching to him, throw strikes, trust your stuff? or is there a different approach you take with him? >> i think you've got to keep repeating yourself. throw strikes, pitch ahead, throw the first strike right down the middle of the plate regardless of the pitch, then expand the zone. but it's, you can only tell them so many times. they've still got to go out there and do it. today it just looked like every hitter was 2-0 and 1-0. i actually had my doubts that he was going it stay out there through five innings just because of the way he started the ballgame.
>> reported -- masn reported today during the game that when olson comes back, stan was going to the bullpen, is that true? >> yeah, that's true. olson is going to go into the rotation and we're going to keep stammen here to pitch out of the bullpen and so we'll have a decision to make tomorrow. >> nats manager manny acta, john lannan gets the start tomorrow trying to stop this nationals slide against baltimore. we'll also be hearing from shairon martis when we come back. times may be tough today, but the things we all look forward to haven't changed. like owning a home. watching our children grow. and retiring with confidence. so whatever you're looking forward to, m&t bank is here to help you get there. m&t bank. understanding what's important.

getting first pitch strikes, so that's going get new trouble. >> how frustrating is that for you, especially when even though it could have been a bigger first inning for the team, with the two bases loaded walks, but then you come out and right away get into a struggling mode. >> it's supposed to be, but they got to be aggressive and throw strikes and i'm not doing that right now. >> can you pinpoint anything as to why? >> so it's john lannan tomorrow for the nats, he's 4-5 against david hernandez being called up from triple-a norfolk for the orioles. >> i'm going to make one statement about john lannan. any club in the major leagues right now he can make. that's how good a pitcher he is. he might be a number five on some of those great clubs, but he can pitch anywhere. the man has done a great job for us. >> won two of his last four starts. i don't have to tell thank you. how about hernandez, 3-2 at norfolk. >> just his second start in his career. all i'm seeing is fastballs. we don't have that much on him, but he was throwing fastballs
in the low 90s. had both outings over five innings, gave up 10 hits his first outing, five hits his second outing. just one earned run in his last outing. so he's getting his, as my mother would say, a little wet behind his ears. >> so the nationals with a loss tonight, they fall to 21-51. 34-40 for the orioles with the win tonight. and they'll go again tomorrow. see if they can salvage game three of the series. >> john lannan will pitch tomorrow night and he'll keep us in the ballgame. i don't know what we're going to do about the hitting. just keep on going out there trying. but got to have a better stronger approach. >> and there's always tomorrow. and tomorrow would be sunday. thanks so much for joining us here in our "nats xtra" post- game tonight. be sure and join us tomorrow beginning at 1:00 on masn. it will be jim hunter and jim palmer and bob carpenter and rob dibble. good night, see you tomorrow. x
