Reality Check: we face two more Dback starters with good ERAs, and then the friggin Giants in SF. This win streak is ending soon and pray to the deity of your choice that we do not go on a big losing streak.
Not sure if this is meant in sarcasm.
The Arizona Diamondbacks and San Francisco Giants have to face the Washington Nationals. Our pitching the best in the majors. We'll be alright. Obviously we'll cool off and there's enough time left in the season we'll hit a rough patch or two, but as long as the Nasty Nats keep winning more than they lose then all is good.
To back up that post, if we went .500 the rest of the way starting today, the Washington Nationals will finish with 95 victories. If the Nats stay on our current season percentage, 100 wins.
The cherry on top is I believe the Nats have more home games down the stretch while the Braves have more road games.
We need to focus on taking care of our business, kicking the Broves butt head to head when we get a chance, and then hope the Reds don't get hot again.
The #1 seed is in our hands. Our destiny is our's. We just have to hold on to the ball and don't fumble this close to the goal line.
