spidey ... i'm not saying in general, i'm saying in these two instances.
sunday night, the o's fans, after waiting through the delay and all that ... had a 2-2 deadlock until the 9th when it just unraveled (by their closer who has been lights out). then they get monday's win.
tonight, they were on their way to being 2-1 with a chance for series win tomorrow (or at the very least forcing a game 5 on friday if they were to fall tomorrow). their closer blew his first save.
while, the nationals, got blasted early on on the road on monday (came back a bit, but then got shelled again).
in their first home playoff game since before WWII, the nats shat the bed from inning one. it wasn't fun by any means, especially for us experiencing our first playoff game ... and it lingered all day. but we knew it was a loss.
the way the o's lost, i just think that would hurt a bit more.
