The Washington Nationals haven’t dared tweak anything about the presidents race since their backwards race earlier this week kicked off a mini winning streak.
So it was no surprise when the racing presidents took off from the wrong direction once again in the final race of the homestand, wearing their Sunday finest.
Abe Lincoln made his strongest charge of the season, surging past as Teddy and Tom tripped in the outfield; but there was no stopping George Washington, who took the tape for the fifth day in a row.
Sadly, the Nationals couldn’t take advantage, dropping the homestand finale 5-2 before 36,457 fans.
Expect the presidents race to return to “normal” when the Nationals return May 7.
