Here are a couple clips from the Washington Nationals 97th win last night over the Pittsburgh Pirates. This is not a playoff game, which will be much harder to get tickets for.
The Nats have already clinched the NL East title. They need 98 wins to finish over .600.
Harper looked rusty. But Stephen Strasburg carried a perfect game into the 5th inning, and Ryan Zimmermann had two doubles and two homers. The Nationals won, 6-1.

2 The scoreboard kept beckoning “louder” as an ovation for Stephen Strasburg as he leaves.
