As I always am for Pirates and Nationals games, I’m blacked from watching these games live this weekend and so I’m just sitting down now to watch some highlights from last night’s win.

Nationals poised to separate from the pack

The Washington Nationals entered Monday with a crucial three-game set against the division rival New York Mets. Barely hanging onto a two-game lead in the National League East, the Nationals knew the importance of coming away with a series win, possibly a sweep of the offensively inept Metropolitans.
