His Name is Joe, Joe Ross

Today Ross started his second game on the mound since being called up from AA-Harrisburg.  He was spectacular, pitching 8 dominant innings against the good-hitting Brewers of Milwaukee.  He even set a new Nationals record for rookie pitchers—facing 51 batters before walking anyone!  Ross showed amazing poise and self-confidence while pounding the strike-zone.  He was still throwing 93-94 mile an hour fastballs in the 8th inning.  The Nats may have to figure out a way to keep him after Strass and Fister return to the starting rotation.
