In 2014, a single life-sized garden gnome clobbered the racing presidents. In 2015, on the team’s second garden gnome night, two gnomes teamed up to take them down once again.
On Tuesday night at Nationals Park, the team celebrated Ben Revere Garden Gnome night, and yes, fans saw all three of the Nats historic gnomes — Jayson Werth, Anthony Rendon, and Revere — team up to topple the presidents once again.
As the fourth inning race began, the presidents found their path blocked by Revere’s doppelganger, but the evening’s star gnome was unarmed, and so they slipped by him easily.
Chased by Revere, George, Tom, Abe, Teddy, Bill and Herbie found a familiar site waiting for them along the first base line.
Werth Gnome and Rendon Gnome were both holding oversized bats, and as the presidents approached, the gnomes popped to life and pummeled them to the ground.
Only Abe, who trailed the pack, managed to slip by Rendon Gnome. Then, followed by Revere Gnome, took the tape.
Teddy Roosevelt’s magic number remains at one.
