Top 10 Takeaways From The Phillies-Nats Series

10) One of these games, the Nationals will actually get to face a relief pitcher

9) Washington drew just under 25,000 for the game, dozens of whom were rooting for the home team

8) Cliff Lee faced 30 Nationals on Thursday night, and didn't have a 2-0 count on any of them, because Lee considers that count gauche

7) Between facing Lee and the Nats' defense, Jordan Zimmerman's 1 ER in 7 IP never had a chance

6) Catcher Wilson Ramos actually got a walk against Lee, which might prove that he should have the starting job now

5) For the second straight game, the Nats did more damage to their pitcher than the opposition

4) Six out of eight Phillies starters are hitting over .300, mostly because, unlike the rest of the National League, they don't have to face the Phillies

3) Lee has racked up double digit strikeouts 11 times, 8 of which have happened since the start of 2010, which proves that he's on the juice

2) The loss dropped the Nats to two games under .500 and two years before public attention

1) When Lee pitches, it's best to not come late to the game, since there's a very good chance that it will end in just over two hours
