Morning pixels: Nats and Orioles push the Beltway Ballot

Tuesday night, for sure, was another one, featuring the Nats blowing a ninth-inning lead, rallying in the bottom of the ninth, falling behind in the 10th, tying things up thanks to Bryce Harper, and then winning on a walk-off wild pitch.

And after the game, everyone got all swoony-like. In identical language.

I. Love. This. Team. #Nats #HarperRules

And so on and so forth. Not a lot of D.C. sports teams that have prompted such love in recent years.
