My Last Nationals Game for the Season

Saturday I went to the next to last home game of the Nationals. I only got to three games this year. Went in May. Tried to set something up in June but that wasn't in the cards. July was just way too hot. August was timing again. The plan had been to go on Friday but it was a very rainy day. We decided not to go. Of course it cleared up but that's how these things work out sometimes.

But Saturday the rain held off. In fact the sun came out for a short while. The game was very enjoyable. A couple of the presidents showed up at the Metro to greet people as they arrived.From the Post:

Chien-Ming Wang did nearly everything right in the final game of his comeback season.

Wang pitched six effective innings and drove in a run with his first career hit, leading the Washington Nationals to a 4-1 victory over the scuffling Atlanta Braves on Saturday.

Making his 11th start since returning from a two-year layoff following shoulder surgery, Wang (4-3) allowed one run and four hits, struck out four and walked none. He lowered his ERA to 4.04.
