The Nats certainly are not going to wow anyone with their offense, that's for sure, but I believe that the insurance run going into the ninth gives them a psychological edge. Chief will give up one run in the ninth, but he very rarely gives up two. Nick just put the ?cherry on top? of a win. Without that bomb, Nats could've been looking at another ?L?.
Some of those one run wins we've had this year became one run wins in the ninth after our bullpen decided to make it ?interesting?. -latrey
