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.
