Simmons Scores on Desmond's Walk-off Error (???)

Mr. Scorekeeper, I beg to differ. This is NOT an error. Watch it several times. Ball hits bat at :05. Run scores at :08. Desmond has about 2 seconds to field, transfer and get the ball home. Impossible. Look at his motion - he knows that if he plays the ball properly, he has no chance. He short arms the throw in a effort to beat the speedy Simmons. Let's give credit where credit's due. Infield single and RBI to Pastornicky, scoring Simmons.

19 games left, 1-Brewers 3-Nats 3-Marlins 3-Phillies 3-Marlins 3-Mets 3-Pirates 6 game lead in WC standings, I see atleast 11 wins out of those 19 games. Is that good enough to get us in the playoffs?

Washington police are already planning for a Nationals World Series parade

I shouldn't be surprised at this, but I am. I hope the baseball gods unleash all sorts of wrath and fury on them.

Kimbrel was lugging five large boxes around the clubhouse before the game. They contained a bunch of goodies he ordered for his teammates from the All-Star game. His fellow relievers got All-Star gnomes, while everyone else received a gray T-shirt. Kimbrel also ordered something for himself: a baseball covered in 24-carat gold.

Odd bit from today's game notes Completely irrelevant, but I thought it was interesting. I wonder what a ball covered in gold looks like.
