The Nationals’ win last night marked the second time in a week they prevailed in a one-run game that ended with an umpire review call. It’s decided somewhere else while the umps stand there with headphones. They tell me it’s “New York” but I think it’s more like the Fortress of Solitude.
I guess you take wins any way you can, and every time I think those Nationals of my hometown are out, they come back with something like this.
The much-hyped pitching matchup last night was clearly won by Aaron Nola, but for once the Nats’ bats bailed out a certain Mr. Scherzer. I guess you take it any way you can.
