The Nats, Nats, Nats, have won four games in a row, back to .500 after a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates. (And how good did it feel Tuesday night when the Nats beat the Pirates and the Caps beat the Penguins?)
Unfortunately the Caps, Caps, Caps could not pull off the Pittsburgh double again last night as they fell to the Pens 3-1. That series is now tied at two.
Is this the old playbook rearing its ugly head? Nats play well in May, Caps don’t? Then in October fortunes reverse?
Let’s hope not.
