Bush destroys Washington

Our nations’ capital was struck Friday evening…by two Bushes.
One, the former owner of the Texas Rangers, celebrated his 61st birthday.
The other celebrated his 7th win of the season–a 6-2 win over the Nationals. Dave Bush celebrated 7/07/07 a day early–going 7 IP, striking out 7, and giving up 7 hits. Fortunately, Bush only allowed one ER and only walked two.
On the offense, Ryan Braun celebrated the first multi-HR game of his young MLB career–first a solo shot in the first off of Nationals’ starter Mike Bacsik, then another solo shot in the fifth…also off Bacsik. Kevin Mench also smacked a homer in the first off of Bacsik, a 3-run shot…both Braun’s and Mench’s homers came with two outs.
Oh, and to all the guys in my fantasy league that reminded me that the Crew lost 3 of 4 to the Pirates–um, the Cubs dropped their first game in PNC Friday evening, 8-4. So the Brewers are now 5½ up on the Cubs (5 in the loss column), and have lowered the Magic Number to 72.
