Still Room On Nationals Bandwagon!
After a 9-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, the Washington Nationals have won eight straight games. Holy smokes.
They are by far the crappiest team in baseball, with a big league-worst 40-72 record this season. Yep, that puts them on pace to lose 100 games. For the second consecutive year.
Three names that come to mind in this productive streak are the numbers 3-5 hitters in the lineup: Ryan Zimmerman (.306/24/75), Adam Dunn (.281/30/84) and Josh Willingham (.309/18/36). Pretty impressive stuff.
Their longest winning streak, dating back to June of 2005, was 10 games -- something they'll try to tie and pass in their upcoming series again the Atlanta Braves. Yay underdogs!
