The Washington Nationals have a series to win today versus the Cubs. After today’s game, the Nats will fly to San Diego for a 4-game series on a west coast trip.
The team still does not have a walk-off win this year and failed last night to get their first walk-off of the season. In full seasons in baseball history, 1995 Expos and the 1978 Cardinals went an entire season without a walk-off (h/t Marc Goldstein). The Nationals are the only team in the last 75 years without a grand slam home run in a season. With only 44-games remaining, we are running out of time for 2022.
Some good news, C.J. Abrams had a key game tying hit last night for his first hit in his Nats’ career. Joey Meneses has a 10-game hitting streak, and he is in rare air with stars in Nats history with the most hits (16) to start a career in the first twelve games of a Nats career.
