It looks like the World Series will go the distance and seven games for the second straight year.
Last night’s 3-inning, 5-run rally back to victory against the San Francisco Giants gave the nationals more than just an improbably series sweep. It gave them more than just the confidence of knowing they are only a half-game back from being one of the 3 best teams in baseball. Last night’s 6-5 victory gave the Washington Nationals a night to look back on as a franchise turning point if they beat all the odds and bring hardware home in October.
Matt Cain strikes out eleven, knocks in a run and goes the distance in helping the Giants defeat the Nationals 3-1 and taking the three game series in San Francisco.
