The Washington Nationals returns to town last night to kick off a homestand against Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants.
The defense was solid, the bullpen held up, and the Nationals rallied for a much-needed win. Unfortunately, the change in fortune did not extend to Teddy Roosevelt during the 4th-inning presidents race.
Remarkably, despite holding the lead going into the outfield corner, Teddy decided to cut the corner to extend his advantage.
It didn’t help. Thomas Jefferson caught up quickly and took the tape as Teddy faded in the home stretch.
