George Washington takes two in the rain. Pierogies next.

It’s still early, but George Washington is separating himself from the pack.

The Nationals racing presidents kicked off the latest homestand with two rain-soaked races Monday and Tuesday at Nationals Park, and apparently George Washington likes his track sloppy.

Washington Nationals Presidents Race by Cheryl NicholsOn Monday night, the presidents raced to the third base side and Washington separated himself early, then danced backwards over the tape in a showboat move. The next day, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Roosevelt all slipped and fell on the warning track, leaving George with a clear path to the finish line, and a 3 game lead over second place Thomas Jefferson.

The forecast is outstanding for the rest of the homestand, but George’s opponents may have some different obstacles to deal with, as the Pirates and Orioles are both expected to bring their mascots along.
