For the first time since August, 2012, the Washington Nationals took a home game to the 13th inning Monday night, triggering a rare treat for presidents race fans: a bonus presidents race.
Earlier in the evening, Teddy Roosevelt had clobbered Abe Lincoln to gain a spot in the season standings.
In race #2, Teddy’s compatriots conspired once again to slow Lincoln down, as George, Tom, and Bill formed a roadblock in the outfield but let Teddy get by to take his historic second victory of the night.
The extra-innings affair moved Roosevelt within two games of Lincoln in the standings. It was the 12th double-header in presidents race history.

The Nationals presidents race season is turning into an unlikely battle between perennial contender Abraham Lincoln and longtime loser Teddy Roosevelt.
During the current homestand, Abe had extended his lead over the hero of San Juan Hill to four games, but when “Honest” Abe got too cocky Monday night at Nationals Park, the Bull Moose exacted his revenge.
Lincoln began the race by chasing down William Howard Taft on the warning track. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson then attempted to clothesline the Great Emancipator, but Abe forced his way through and it was the founding fathers who ended up on the ground.
Lincoln took off for the finish line but stopped to showboat for the crowd along the foul line. That’s when Teddy leaped from the stands and planted Lincoln face down in the grass.
Teddy’s victory was his second of the series.
On Friday night, Teddy celebrated the night’s big movie opening by racing with a stuffed baby Godzilla. Roosevelt tossed the lizard at his competitors as they approached the finish line, and as they all hit the dirt, Teddy turned to claim the win.

The Nationals racing presidents made an appearance at the ESPN “up fronts” on Tuesday in New York City, joining executives on Broadway’s Minskoff Theater stage for the network’s annual gathering of media buyers.
The annual presentation has evolved over the years into a multimedia show filled with network personalities.
The Disney-owned network unveiled a redesigned set for its flagship SportsCenter show, and revealed that racing president Teddy Roosevelt would soon appear in the show’s iconic TV commercials.
The Nats’ famous mascots then scampered on stage as part of a scripted gag, and posed for photos with attendees.
Teddy’s Sportcenter ad was shot last week at ESPN headquarters, and should appear on the air this summer.

The Nats road trip did not get off to a great start this weekend, but that didn’t seem to bother racing president Teddy Roosevelt.
With the team in California dropping a series to the As, the original Rough Rider was back in DC Saturday night at Stroga in Adams Morgan, getting down on the dance floor to Miley Cyrus.

After taking the first race of the homestand in the rain Monday night, Teddy Roosevelt looked well positioned to make a run for first place in the standings, but Abe Lincoln turned it up a notch to take the last two races of the short series on Tuesday and Wednesday, nosing out William Howard Taft then Thomas Jefferson to widen his lead before the break.
The presidents race returns May 16th when the next homestand begins.

The pouring rain wasn’t the only hurdle facing the racing presidents during the fourth inning Friday night at Nationals Park.
As the race began, the team’s “Secret Service” had set up hurdles in the form of folding tables in foul territory along the first base line.
The race was tight approaching the tables, but as his fellow presidents tumbled into the obstacle, the Rough Rider took a beautiful leap over the tables and stuck a clean landing that carried him to victory.
