After watching his team get swept by a Nationals club riding a 10-game winning streak, the opposing manager complimented D.C.’s red-hot baseball team.
“Everything that goes in a game is bouncing their way,” he said. “And to their credit, they are taking advantage of it.”
Sounds about right. Except the opposing manager wasn’t Arizona’s Kirk Gibson, it was Seattle’s Mike Hargrove. And it wasn’t said Thursday after the Nats won their 10th straight game, it was said on June 12, 2005 after the inaugural Nats won their 10th straight game.
