I've never seen a ball crushed like that when the bat shatters.

Congrats Mr Rutledge!

Young = 2024 CF

Well Harvey and Finnegan should be available for the nightcap. 69 wins and all we need is one more in the next six for 70. Just tied 2010 and two more to tie 2006. Glad to see Rutledge get his first win.

With the :w: posted, we honor our friend Old Chelsea with the traditional post that tracks the Nats wins to date, in Anglophile style.

THE RACING PRECEDENTS: Comparative dates on which the Nationals notched their 69th win of the season, each season:

2012 - 9th August (112th match of season)
2017 - 12th August (114th match)
2016 - 14th August (116th match)
2014 - 17th August (122nd match)
2019 - 21st August (126th match)
2005 - 31st August (133rd match)
2013 - 1st September (136th match)
2018 - 3rd September (138th match)
2015 - 4th September (134th match)
2011 - 13th September (146th match)
2007 - 23rd September (156th match)
2023 - 24th September (156th match)
2006 - 25th September (156th match)
2010 - 4th October (162nd match) - final win of season
---
2022- finished 55-107 (.340)
2009 - finished 59-103 (.364)
2008 - finished 59-102 (.366)
2021 - finished 65-97 (.401)
2020 - finished 26-34 (.433)

ties win total for 2010 at 69. Niiiiice.

2006 was a 71 win season, 2007 the Nats won 73.  So it's 1 win to reach 70, and 2 to tie 2006.
