It might not have been the team’s weirdest win of the season, but it felt like it. Felt like a big one, too.
“That was BY FAR the biggest win of the year!” F.P. Santangelo wrote on Twitter. “Up 6 [instead of] up 4 w your bullpen spent and stras tomorrow who you can’t extend. HUGE!!!!!! HUGE!!!!!”
The post-win celebration was fitting, too. Above is the boring image of Danny Espinosa crossing home. Below are his teammates’ reactions.
The Nats, by the way, are now 30 games over .500, with the best record in baseball, the best run differential in baseball, a six-game divisional lead (for the first time since arriving in D.C.) and a projected win total of 101. That probably warrants a few hugs.
