I was pulling for the Astros but congrats to the Nats. What a run - 5-0 during elimination games, with three of those wins against Hader, Kershaw and Verlander. A GWRBI that hits the foul pole. A ball that hits the base but hits the top of the base so that it bounces right to their fielder. They could very well have lost the WC game had the Brewers RF not totally misplayed a ground ball. I always hate the Team of Destiny narrative, but if ever a team made you think otherwise it might be this Nats team.
And a part me is glad because I get a little tired of the Orioles worrying over the Nationals being good. Worry about your own house, O's, and the rest will take care of itself.
