Taylor with a sac RBI fly out to LCF, tie game 3-3. Fredi maybe should have stuck with Vizcaino.

4-3 Nats in the 10th. Fredi costs us a win yet again with his stupid management of the bullpen. Should have let Viz pitch another inning, he had a stress free 8th inning and throws harder than Grilli. Bad starts to the season from Grilli and EOF.

I've blamed Fredi for a lot of bullpen mismanagement in the past, and rightfully so, but I can't blame him for putting in Grilli. He's our closer, and he had a great year last year before injury, he's the guy we go to in the 9th.

Grilli actually got out of that bases loaded jam in the 9th. Got a strikeout and shallow flyout, where Inciarte made a very good throw on time to get Werth out at the plate, but Pierzynski couldn't hold on. If there's anyone to blame, it's him.
