Whoever does the scoring for the Nationals is horrible. Robert Fick booted a ground ball, infield hit. Then Fick picks up a ground ball throws to the covering Belliard, Belliard drops the ball, base hit. ANd according to the Elias Sports Bureau, Brandon Phillips should be credited with two stolen bases on his play, not one. Come on.

Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.
