GAME IN A NUTSHELL: With the way this recent homestand has transpired for the Nationals, it’s tough to count them out no matter the hole they find themselves in. It seems day after day a Nats’ opponent has earned a lead early in a game before watching it slip away slowly but surely.
On Sunday, the Nationals began the afternoon down 5-0 to the Giants before chipping away with two runs in the fourth inning. They then caught fire in the sixth, putting up six runs to take an 8-6 lead. They would then add six more in the seventh and eighth innings to secure a 14-6 blowout win over San Francisco.
