Game #49 is Game 2 of the doubleheader with Wil Crowe on the mound

These seven inning doubleheaders are great when your starter goes deep in the first game of the doubleheader, and mission accomplished by Erick Fedde who threw a 6.0 inning one-hit shutout that Will Harris finished up for a 5-0 win. Now it is Wil Crowe’s turn to pitch a gem. 

The second game of this doubleheader will start 45-minutes after the first game ended, and this one will start at 8:10 EDT. That will make this a long night for all involved in what is scheduled as a 14-inning day.

There is certainly some momentum for the Nats hitters who made some very nice contact at the bottom of the Nats order.

With a fresh bullpen, manager Dave Martinez only had to use Harris as mentioned, and it gives him an opportunity for a quick hook if need. But all hope is that Crowe pitches a great game for the Washington Nationals as this is his chance to shine.
