THE NATS ARE UNDEFEATED

Really…no kidding. No, it’s not an April Fools’ joke, they’re undefeated. That’s more than the Red Sox can say…

Our beloved Washington Nationals took their late-inning act on the road. Nick Johnson's tiebreaking RBI double off Tom Gordon highlighted a five-run ninth inning and the Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 11-6 Monday.

On Sunday night, Ryan Zimmerman's solo homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth gave Washington a 3-2 victory over Atlanta in the debut of its $611 million Nationals Park.

No doubt, there was some celebrating on the bus ride to Philly. The Nationals arrived after 2 a.m., but weren't too tired to spoil the Phillies' opening-day party.
