I think that's a three-run lead!

Pretty dramatic punch-out for a missed call. Enrico Palazzo has the plate this game?

9 outs to go. Plenty of time to make it a save situation.

Nope. Four-run lead.

Just win this game, Nats.

I guess it's HArvey to Finny at the end to get win #70. No Ward, no Abbott, no starter in the pen.

I’m a happy camper that the Nats got 70 wins. I can feel good about next year

I said early in the year Earl Weaver couldn't win 70 with this team. Maybe he could of, maybe he couldn't, but Davey sure did!!!
