Generally speaking the pitching was good. Joba gave the Yankees 6 innings and 3 runs, a quality start, and Aceves, Coke and Robertson held the Nationals scoreless over three innings. I wouldn't call it an accomplishment, but its something.
The Nationals first three hitters are major league caliber, the remaining 6 are not, how are we losing to this team?
For the second consecutive game, a crappy pitcher has bedazzled the Yankees. The Yankees were shutout and really couldn't muster much against the Nationals. Now we've lost the series, nay, our self respect.
