The Washington Nationals suffered a heartbreaking collapse to the ever pesky St. Louis Cardinals and after the game the players were met with an unwelcome sight. The Nationals players walked into the clubhouse and found that the plastic covering the lockers from champagne being sprayed all over. Oof. Talk about adding insult to injury. The plastic had been rolled up and quickly taped to the ceiling. Some of the plastic had been ripped down and tiny shreds were still seen tacked to the wall of the clubhouse. It was a somber mood in the Nats clubhouse. Some players were hugging each other in sad embrace and others were tearing up. The Nationals closer Drew Storen was seen walking in circles in the clubhouse with his uniform off. Another photo shows Storen sitting alone in front of his locker with his head held down. It may have been a tough end to a fantastic season in the nation's capital, but it appears as if the future is bright in Washington and Nats fans just have to wait another year for a World Series run.
