Nationals fans who braved the cold at Nationals Park Friday night were rewarded with a walk-off victory as the team kicked off a series vs. the Milwaukee Brewers with a dramatic 10-inning affair.
The Brewers, who are known for both their frugality and their famous sausage race, once again refused to bring their racing mascots to town; and so, for the third consecutive year, the Nationals made do with their own substitutes.
In the fourth-inning presidents race, the “un-racing sausages” made their now annual appearance by blocking the finish line. The Nats racing presidents busted through their cardboard blockade, and Jefferson pulled ahead for the win.
Expect to see more antics from the makeshift sausages as the series continues this weekend.
