This 87th win pulls this year's edition even with the last winning edition (save the 78-76 1952 team) of AL Senators version 1.0:

99 - 1933 [pennant winner]
96 - 1925 [pennant winner]
94 - 1930
93 - 1932
92 - 1924 [World Series winner], 1931
91 - 1912
90 - 1913
87 - 1945, 2012
86 - 1969

[from here on in I'm leaving in all the teams with 86 or more wins, to keep AL Senators 2.0's lone representative in the mix]

THIS DAY WITH THE '05 OVERACHIEVERS: For the third straight home series, win the first, lose the rest...so it went again on Saturday 10th September 2005 as the Nats were clean-sheeted by Jorge Sosa and the Braves, 4-nil...record now 73-70...http://espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=250910120

Good to see the Brewers pull out their match against the Braves...we're still up 6.5.

Stick a fork in the Pirates - they're done (getting swept at home by the Cubs, a team the Nats had just gotten done manhandling??).
