While the Washington Nationals open a three-game set in Atlanta on Monday night, Nationals fans would be wise to set their DVRs for Fox Sports 1 at 7 p.m. to ensure they don’t miss the Nationals episode of “Mission October.”

As part of the weekly all-access series put together by MLB Productions, Mission October crews joined the Nationals for their four-game series in New York this past weekend. With the Nationals’ Magic Number shrinking to four by the time they boarded their flight for Atlanta on Sunday night, the show will give fans an inside look at a pivotal series in their march toward the Posteason.

“‘Mission October’ takes an inside-access look at a different potential playoff team every weekend in September, and we’re very excited to spotlight the Nationals this week,” said on-field producer Jason Katz. “We had a great time filming with the Nats.

“The show will feature a very fun in game wire on Denard Span, an off-the-field element and in-game wire with Bryce Harper, Matt Williams and some of his coaches on their daily run, and much more.

Nationals fans won’t want to miss it.

Here are a few behind-the-scenes photos from the filming:





Excellent showcase. Where can I buy this episode?

Matt Williams apparently is not through playing Russian Roulette with Soriano spinning the revolver cylinder and and pulling the trigger. It seems a very odd time for Williams to be trying a redemption and reclamation act on Soriano, just before the Nats finally win the NL Eastern Division Championship. Mike Rizzo can be tough when he wants to. It is time that he applied a little tough love to Williams on the eve of one game left to claim the championship. Come on Mattie it took Storen 2 years to earn his way back to the closers spot. It is time to get real about Soriano as well.
