Up above: video of Jhonatan Solano's incredible diving tag to nail Chase Utley at the plate during the 8th inning of last night's thrilling 3-2 Nationals win over the Phillies, one of two critical defensive plays on the night. Craig Stammen strikes out Darin Ruf for the second out of the inning, ball gets away from Solano, Utley tries to score the tying run from third, Solano dives to tag him out. The other best part was Craig Stammen leaping over Utley.
Thanks to Matt Adams and the Cardinals' 16-inning win over the Reds last night, Nats are just 6.5 backof a Wild Card spot...
