8.28.13 – Nationals 4, Marlins 3

Stat of the Game: Jayson Werth tied the game with a solo shot in the sixth, becoming the first National to 20 home runs this season.

Under-the-Radar Performance: Ian Desmond came through with the go-ahead RBI in the seventh, following an intentional walk with two outs.

It Was Over When: For the second night in a row, Drew Storen, Tyler Clippard and Rafael Soriano put up zeroes in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings, respectively, to preserve the one-run win.


I know that the Hispanic Heritage night promos were all produced by the MLB office, but it is a shame that, with all of that, no mention was made of the oldest living ex-Washington National (Senator), Connie Marrero.

He played in the Cuban Major League and for the Nats. He is still alive and currently reigns as the oldest living former major leaguer at 102+.

Win one game at a time. Fundamentals, fundamentals and more fundamentals. Situational hitting to scratch out one run at a time. Forget about being the hero who hits the 3 run homer. Do these things and we still have a chance.
