With Stephen Strasburg mowing down the Colorado Rockies to lead the team to its third straight victory, the nearly 35,000 fans in attendance were able to celebrate the change of seasons as a sign of renewed hope for a Nats postseason run.
Marking the occasion, the racing presidents emerged for the fourth inning race wearing colorful Hawaiian shirts, but the summer fabric apparently wasn’t enough to cool down the portly William Howard Taft, who stopped at the bullpen door to invite Kool-Aid Man onto the field.
Mr. Kool-Aid exchanged high fives with Taft, then turned and tackled all of Tafts competition, knocking them collectively from the race. The Big Chief trotted unopposed to the finish line.
