THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: Friday 2nd September 2005 saw the Nats, after splitting a four-match series at Atlanta, fall baxk ro earth with a 7-1 loss at home to the Phillies, keyed by David Bell's grand slam in the third...record now 69-66...http://espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=250902120

Actually the Nats would rally and win the Saturday and Sunday engagements of this series...it would be the last home series they would win that season. In September the 2005 Nats were 7-3 on the road...but only 5-14 at home.
