They are 15-11 now against the National League’s pennant contenders. They just won series against the Dodgers and Mariners. Last night’s game was their absolute best of 2014. Came from behind THREE times! Adam LaRoach came off the trainer’s table in the 9th inning and proceeded to carry his team on his aching back!!
I won’t bother recounting all the twists and turns, but I wish the playoffs werre starting TODAY! Readers very likely know most of the details, but I recommend Tom Boswell’s piece in the Wash. Post today, as well as Mark Zuckerman’s thing in Nats Insider.
As I left the restaurant with my 51/2 yr old grandson and his grandmother, Jason Werth was dropping the fly ball in the 9th inning. For the next 21/2 hours I was glued to an FM radio in the grips of a game I will not forget!
