Oh well.  I have no confidence in Clippard to convert the save.

He's been awful, let's hope he can throw strikes and not give up a home run.

They've got to finish this one.  A loss in this game would really sting.

Fangraphs says we still have an 88% chance of winning this game. But burning up the bullpen was a horrible long-term thing to happen.

A loss in this game could set the tempo for the rest of the series.

Losing this game could potentially send the Nats on a long losing streak.  They're due for one and this loss would crush them going into the DH tomorrow.

Clippard will save it, but he'll make us nervous.

I hope so but Clip has been shaky lately...

I can't remember the last time we have seen such a massive momentum shift within one game like this.

Look at that play by Freeman

Hope will be lost and faith will be broken if the Nats lose this game.

I blame the umpiring crew who are a bunch of idiots.  The conditions were terrible.  Nats pitchers looked like crap in the rain.  Braves pitchers didn't look good either but got bailed out by the Nats swinging poorly.

Fangraphs now forecasts an 85% chance of victory. Highest was 99.8% after the 9th run.

If this game wasn't stopped because of the rain, why would any game ever be stopped because of rain?
