    Agree 100%. To trail for 3 hours, and then take the lead and end the game in 20 minutes is hard to comprehend. Kind of like the baseball version of the Louisville game in a way. But itís also so 2019 Nats to dig themselves a hole and fight out of it.

    Stadium was nervous in the 6th and 7th but electric in the 8th and 9th. Best game in DC since the Werth walk off in the 2012 NLDS.

    Soto is a stud. 20 years old. Amazing

    Used 2 starters and have to face a tough Dodgers team in 2 days, but enjoying the heck out of tonight.

    N-A-T-S Nats Nats Nats Wooooo!

    It was great. I'd say it was better than the Werth walkoff, because it meant that the Nats advanced. Also, Soto's hit was one of the biggest win probability swings in postseason history. Great recap here: https://blogs.fangraphs.com/twenty-s...in-a-thriller/

    Stadium was electric. I'm very tired today, but happy.

    Tough loss for the Braves tonight. Got to tip my cap to the Redbirds, it was a great game. Acuna and Freddie with shots in the 9th but 1 run short. I'll be at the game tomorrow and it's now a must win with this being a 5 game series. Can't go down 0-2 going to St Louis and expect to win.

    Sigh, vintage playoff Kershaw last night. As great as he's been for the Dodgers over the years, his playoff performance won't be what gets him in the Hall if that happens.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.

    Braves put up 3 in the 9th to beat the Cards after being shut out up to that point. This has been a great series so far. Braves now up 2-1.

    Kershaw has the best career adjusted ERA of any starting pitcher. Ever. You have to go back to the days of Walter Johnson to find any starting pitcher with a lower career ERA. Thereís no if about him going into the HOF, but, yes, the postseason has been more average.

    Cardinals beat the Braves 5-4 in 10 to force Game 5 on Wednesday. Yadi Molina with clutch hits in 8th and 10th innings.

    Ugh... And now Flaherty is waiting on the wings. As a Braves fan I think we missed our chance tonight. Beating Flaherty twice in one series is a tall order.

    If someone had told me fifteen or thirty years ago that one day I'd be rooting against the Braves in a playoff series on my birthday, I'd have told them they were crazy. (I did root for Atlanta over Saint Louis in the 2012 Wild Card--it wasn't really too hard--the Birds had just won the whole deal, and it was Chipper's last ride).

    But I didn't see White Flight Field happening. So here we are.

    Wilson--

    This rather obvious point only now dawned on me--this is the only major league sport in which Atlanta and Saint Louis meet, at present. Atlanta stole StL's NBA team before the Moon Landing but cannot keep losing hockey clubs to the Canadian Prairie*; in turn, the NFL has conclusively told StL to eat poo and die. So football, hockey, and basketball matchups are out.

    Saint Louis MLS 2022! See you then, Atlanta.

    * -- I have found that few Blues fans, even those with requisite years, have any idea the Calgary Flames inhabited any other city.

    This is indeed an interesting observation, made more interesting by the Hawks connection.
    If St. Louis MLS is anywhere near as fun as Atlanta MLS has been, y'all are in for a treat. My wife and I will certainly be visiting for a road game at some point, as she is a SLU grad with lots of friends still in the area.

    6 pitches, 2 home runs...uncanny how poorly he pitches in the playoffs

    In fact, 3 pitches in the 8th, 2 home runs

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.
