The Nats didn't quite score as many runs as I would have liked (17 when I was looking for 20+) but in the end it didn't matter because, let's say it together, the pitching is that good. 9 runs in 5 games. Pretty damn impressive
Other things of note
- Best record!
- One game off biggest division lead in baseball!
- maybe Beast Mode is back? As much as people wanted to convince themselves otherwise, before mid-July there was no Beast Mode. Morse was rocking a isoSLG of .120 which is like slap-hitting middle infielder level. If you believed that was Beast Mode you must have said "Ooooh that ball went really far for a single!" a lot. But since mid July he's rocking a .250 isoSLG which is Top 20 in baseball. Sure that counts last night but pull that away and he was still at .191 which is like Top 50. Still good. He's rounding into form.
I hope you printed them out when I told you to.
