THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: Thursday 7th July 2005 saw the Nats lose in 11 innings to the Mets, 3-2, on a Mike Piazza RBI - Nats lost this home series 3-1, and thus began the unravelling of the '05 Overachievers...record now 41-34...http://espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=250707120.

(Further interesting bit about that series - All four matches of the series - Fourth of July, Tuesday and Wednesday nights and Thursday afternoon - drew 35,000 or better. It's easy nowadays to forget that back in those days it was the Mets (and Cubs), not the Phillies, that brought the big opposition crowds...the Phillies invasions didn't really start till they won the Series in '08.)
