The most important aspect of tonight's game at Miller Park.
Better than Nyjer Morgan's Leadoff Homer.
Better than Adam Dunn's TITANIC blast that bounced out of The Milwaukee Brewers' Ballpark.
Better than Josh Willingham's bat staying hot.
Better than Washington moving runners along with simple base hits and sacrifice bunts.
Better than Morgan knocking home two more runs later in this affair.
Better than Collin Balester bending but not breaking on the mound against The Brew Crew.
Better play thanks to improved defensive glove work by Our Washington Nationals.
And better than "The Guz" sealing this deal tonight with a three run homer in the top of the 8th.
All those aspects were not better than watching Our Washington Nationals having fun playing baseball again.
Washington's Players displaying smiles all around in the dugout and on the field.
Teammates enjoying the game and the camaraderie that comes with it.
Winning on a consistent basis--now four in a row--can certainly help take away some of the sting experienced most of this season.
A lot of smiling faces representing DC Baseball at Miller Park Tonight. Ones representing joy, happiness--the very reasons to look ahead because Washington is playing some mighty fine ball right now--winners of six out of their last eight.
Final Score from Miller Park where for the second consecutive night--a ball game was really never in doubt for the team that calls The Nation's Capital its home--Our Washington Nationals 8 and The Milwaukee Brewers 3. Curly "W" Number 32 perfectly represented what winning always does--in any sport.
Success always breeds confidence.
Triumph provides comfort.
And being able to overcome and prevail after so much travail this season--can only bring Smiling Faces to Our Washington Nationals, as well as, The African Queen and I tonight. Sure, Washington is going to have their bad days again--it's bound to happen. But over the past week, more times than not--DC's Team has come prepared to play.
Another good win. Another well played game.
