With a win Friday afternoon at Nationals Park, the Nats clinched home field advantage through the playoffs, but Teddy Roosevelt’s magic number stayed stuck at one, as “Honest” Abe Lincoln cheated his way to two victories in the day-night doubleheader, pulling into a tie with Teddy Roosevelt atop the presidents race standings.
The afternoon game featured $1 ice cream cones, so it was no surprise when “Nice Cream Cone” made a return appearance to Nationals Park during the presidents race. The giant dessert first went after Lincoln, but then took down all of his opponents, leaving a clear path for the Great Emancipator to take the opener.
In the nightcap, Lincoln enlisted the Secret Service to clear a path to the finish line, first clotheslining Teddy Roosevelt in the outfield, then tackling Washington, Jefferson, and Taft while Lincoln preened for the fans.
Abe’s antics ensure that the 2014 presidents race title will come down to the final game of the season.

Wednesday was Army Night at Nationals Park, and during the fourth inning presidents race, the racing presidents stopped in the outfield to hold an impromptu tug-of-war competition.
With Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln anchored on one side by the portly William Howard Taft, it appeared that George Washington and Teddy Roosevelt didn’t stand a chance on the other side.
But the two former Army leaders let go of the rope, and as their competitors tumbled to the warning track, Teddy took off for the finish line.
The victory was the second straight for Teddy, who vaulted into unprecedented territory this late in the season: sole possession of first place in the standings.
On Tuesday night, Teddy had won after being the only racing president to survive the onslaught of a man in an ice cream cone who hunted down and tackled all of Teddy’s competitors.
The costumed character, dubbed “Nice Cream Cone,” was celebrating Tuesday’s $1 dollar ice cream night at Nationals Park.
