Comparative dates on which the Nationals notched their 86th win, each season:

2017 - 7th September (140th match of season)
2012 - 8th September (139th match)
2016 - 12th September (144th match)
2014 - 15th September (149th match)
2013 - 28th September (161st match) - final win of season

---

2015 - finished 83-79
2005 - finished 81-81
2011 - finished 80-81
2007 - finished 73-89
2006 - finished 71-91
2010 - finished 69-93
2008 - finished 59-102
2009 - finished 59-103
next win, nothing but playoff teams still on the list!  Knocking off 2012 would be a nice feat.

OC, shouldn't the sort be in order of accomplishment, i.e. 2012 should be first?

A valid point given the fact that MLB fixture lists (notably season-opener dates) are not strictly uniform from season to season, but I prefer to use the strict date-based format so as to recognise the actual date a milestone win is reached.
