Signature Moments: Supporting Roles — May 12
During the marathon of a 162-game baseball season, there are thrilling moments that highlight the successes of every club, from the front runner to the cellar dweller. The 2014 Washington Nationals are no exception, as they have sparked excitement throughout The District while returning to postseason play for the second time in three years.
Over the course of the regular season, though there were so many great moments, nine “Signature Moments” stood out above the rest — including a Monday evening in May that followed a sweep at the hands of the Oakland Athletics.
Trailing the Arizona Diamondbacks by a run entering the top of the ninth inning — and missing Bryce Harper, Adam LaRoche, Wilson Ramos and Ryan Zimmerman to injuries — the Nationals powered their way to an improbable win to stay above the .500 mark on the season.
Check out our second Signature Moment of the 2014 season:
