In 38 games as Nationals pitching coach, Steve McCatty has guided Washington’s young starting staff to remarkable returns. Despite watching a rookie toe the rubber in a starting role 27 times in those 38 contests, Steve’s starting staff is 8-13 with a 4.10 ERA (106 ER/232.2 IP) and has tallied 20 quality starts (53%).


Nyjer Morgan is doing the little things to generate runs. He laid a perfect bunt down last night for a single. Then stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error. Morgan scored on a Nick Johnson ground out. Morgan has seven stolen bases in July. That is good for first in the league tied with BOS Jacoby Ellsbury and HOU Michael Bourn since July, 1st.
