during the game the talking heads on the tv said, ehem, the last 10 teams that came from behind to win game 1 ended up winning the series










just sayin

That bodes well I would say.

I'm impressed that even with shaky pitching today the Nats pulled it off. Winning game 1 is a huge deal. Puts some doubt in the Astros and the Nats now have a win in the opponents barn.

Soto!! Obviously Im not a big baseball fan, but I didn't realize the Nats were supposed to get swept..  :huh: From listening to Joe Buck and his sidekick you'd think they shouldn't of even played the game with Cole on the mound.. When Soto lit him up, upper deck, I couldn't keep the grin off my face! Go get em' boys!!

Like I said before the game....
confident we can win this.  ;)


IN all honesty, I thought the game was over in the 4th when Max was already at 90-some pitches.  We just have NO middle relief.  I was surprised to see Corbin, then surprised they removed him so quickly.
Rainey....typical Nats middle reliever....just NEVER know what you are going to get.  Bold moves to bring in Hudson early and let it ride.  Sure bet there would have been all kinds of hindsight coaching if it gone sour.




Soto....geez what can you say on this kid.


Guess that's why they go ahead and play the games...cause none of the experts (or us reglar folk) know what's going to happen.


Beating Cole in game 1 in their barn is pretty big.  Way to go Nats.




We need SuperStras to show tonight.


GO NATS!!




ahem...I am So Stoked for game 2 and confident we can win this!

starting lineups for game 2:
Nationals: In Game 1, Washington became the first team to score at least five earned runs and hand Gerrit Cole a loss since May 22, thanks to the efforts of Soto, who collected three hits, drove in three runs and stole a base. Look for manager Dave Martinez to roll out the same lineup vs. Verlander.
Here is Washington's projected lineup:
1) Trea Turner, SS
2) Adam Eaton, RF
3) Anthony Rendon, 3B
4) Juan Soto, LF
5) Howie Kendrick, DH
6) Asdrķbal Cabrera, 2B
7) Ryan Zimmerman, 1B
8- Kurt Suzuki, C
9) Victor Robles, CF

Astros: The only assured change in the lineup is Robinson Chirinos replacing Martin Maldonado at catcher with Verlander on the mound.
Here is Houston's projected lineup:
1) George Springer, CF
2) Josť Altuve, 2B
3) Michael Brantley, LF
4) Alex Bregman, 3B
5) Yuli Gurriel, 1B
6) Carlos Correa, SS
7) Yordan Alvarez, DH
8- Robinson Chirinos, C
9) Josh Reddick, RF

Here is a really good article I enjoyed.

Pretty amazing stats for the Nats in Game 1, especially for young Soto.

I thought it was rather appropriate that the first person the Nationals ever drafted also hit the Nationals first ever World Series home run

much better inning from Stras, still throwing too many pitches though, can't keep taking each batter to a full count

this ump sucks, the strike zone isn't the plate

I agree the ump is blind, but the rest I don't get.

the ump isn't using the plate as the strike zone, it's where the catcher sets up

Where did you hear that?  I played a lot of baseball and coached for three years. Over the plate and between knees and waist is the zone ever since I can remember. Did something radically change in recent years. Batter has no way of knowing where the catcher is.
I was a pitcher for a few years,as was my son.
