How do you follow up on what was arguably the most electric night in team history?
The day after a sellout crowd was mesmerized by Stephen Strasburg’s debut, and Teddy barely missed making a little history of his own, the Nationals racing presidents answered that question by throwing out everything but the proverbial kitchen sink.
Wednesday’s 4th-inning presidents race looked at first like a repeat of the night before. The “un-racing sausages” joined Pittsburgh’s racing pierogies in a crowded field, and held a lead over the presidents into the final turn.
On this night, however, the critter waiting in ambush was none other than long-time presidential nemesis “That Cat,” who had recruited the Nationals Park grounds crew to the cause. They stormed onto the field, taking down all of the visiting mascots, and leaving Thomas Jefferson with a clear path to victory.
