Last batter he has to face. Wait, he faced four. Nevermind.

Soto scratched, Strasburg scratched, 1-1 vs the Yankees... I'll take it.

I'm giving the game ball tonight to Victor. 

Finnegan > Rosenthal?  We'll see.

This was Finnegan's first appearance in a MLB game. You kind of expect him to be super nervous, especially facing the Yankees lineup in his first ever game. He did well enough all things considering.

The only place I can say I don't like it is when it shows a guys stealing breaking contact with a bag for a tenth of a second.  A PGA style having to see it with the naked eye at real speed would be a good fix for that one.   Confirming whether a first baseman came off the bag or not is legit to me.

I’ve seen suggestions that the rule should be changed so that the cylinder (prism?) above the base counts as the base when you’re sliding, so when your foot/hand bounces off, you’re still safe as long as you beat the throw. You’d still be out if you slid past the base.

Dont think Finnegan is our 8th inning guy in a close game

Chambers, cylinders?   Is your medicine/law/physics auto correct dictionary or is baseball a lot more complicated than I realized?

I have no idea how it got changed to what appeared. I edited my post. Maybe I was drunk.

THE RACING PRECEDENTS: Comparative dates on which the Nationals notched their first win, each season:

2018 - 30th March (1st match of season, postponed from 29th March)
2008 - 30th March (1st match)
2014 - 31st March (1st match)
2019 - 31st March (3rd match)
2013 - 1st April (1st match)
2011 - 2nd April (2nd match)
2017 - 3rd April (1st match)
2016 - 4th April (1st match)
2007 - 4th April (3rd match)
2012 - 5th April (1st match)
2006 - 5th April (2nd match)
2005 - 6th April (2nd match)

2015 - 8th April (2nd match)
2009 - 16th April (8th match)

...or is this really pointless with the much shorter season and much later start?
