Say Whatever you want, cheer for whomever you choose, but the just completed 3 game series between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals at RFK Stadium was the finest 3 game series since baseball returned to Washington. Despite the crushing Nats 7-5 loss on Friday night to the Bombers, the stadium was rocking. It was a GREAT NIGHT at the old ballpark. An exciting, edge of your seat, game and a crowd that was truly into it from the start. This all carried over to saturday, when it looked liked the Nats would get blown out of RFK for the weekend, but they came back by scoring 9 straight runs over the last 4 innings to win a thrilling 11-9 victory. And, finally, the ultimate, last at-bat ELECTRIFYING 2 RUN HOMER BY RYAN ZIMMERMAN TODAY to give the Nats a 3-2 series clinching victory before a loud and robust crowd of 45,187. BASEBALL WAS AT ITS BEST THIS WEEKEND. THIS IS WHY BASEBALL IS THE GREATEST GAME. It not about a clock, its not about running out of time. You must get the opponent out, OR YOU LOSE!! JUST LOVED THIS!! LOVE THIS!!
