Both of these games ended up being 1-run games that could just as easily have gone the other way. I'm personally not a fan of complimenting other teams, but if you think the Orioles are good then you have to say the Nats are too.
I was just sitting here thinking that baseball really is more random than I like to admit it is. Either of these games could have gone either way, and probably will next series... or the one after that.
When you have above average pitching and below average hitting, the games really do seem like a coin flip.
