Determining how many games it takes for an MLB team to become mathematically eliminated from making the playoffs is hard. So let’s have Nats’ play-by-play announcers Dave Jageler and Charlie Slowes explain it during the rain delay, in this short audio clip.
Bryce Harper’s 2-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the 9th gave the Nats a 9-7 ‘Curly W’ over the Pirates, snapping Washington’s six-game losing streak. Hear the celebratory radio call from Nats PxP announcer Charlie Slowes.
Davey Johnson was tossed from the game, arguing a called strike three in the fifth inning as the Nats led the Pirates 4-1 on Thursday. To even things out, Pirates’ skipper Clint Hurdle was also tossed a little more than an inning later.
Bryce Harper wasn’t happy he had to shave his beard off to get stitches, after slamming into the wall at Dodgers Stadium Monday, but legendary broadcaster Vin Scully was.
Slowes discusses the Nationals .500 record and Harper in the minors.
