The Nationals reduced their magic number to 3 with Thursday's win in Philadelphia. But with the Braves refusing to lose, they know they've still got work to do to wrap up the NL East title.
The Nats found themselves in an early hole in Philly, but no need to panic. Gio Gonzalez got back on track, and the lineup bust things open with an impressive display of power.
Though Bo Porter was named Astros manager on Thursday, the Nationals third base coach says his focus is entirely on helping Washington win a World Series first.
With his 20th homer, his 17th stolen base and his 93rd run scored, Bryce Harper on Wednesday night continued to separate himself from every other teenager in MLB history.
