Bring on the Nats

M's win 8-0 behind a strong performance from Aaron Sele (I know!) and 2 RBI nights from Winn, Big Sexxy and Raul Ibanez.

The Randinator flipped the ole finger to Walter by hitting his first dinger of the year. I should talk, I said the M's starters would get lit up in this series. Um. Three starts, 6 earned runs. Really two very solid starts and Meche's not-that-terrible one.

Morse is hitting .318 since his call up. Winn is 22 for his last 57 (.386), Raul is 21 for his last 53 (.396) and slugging .566 over that period. The hometown nine has won 8 of 11 and are averaging more than 5 runs a game for those 11 games. Previously they were a shade under 4 runs a game. More encouraging is that the offense is picking up despite Ichiro's slump and the continued struggles of Beltre and Boone.

Could we look back at this homer by Methuselah as the turning point of the season?
