Olympic champion Katie Ledecky throws out first pitch at Nationals Park.
The Nationals guaranteed the first winning season by a D.C. ballclub in 43 years, but they've still got much loftier goals in mind.
Michael Morse was surprisingly taken out of today's game with what the club called a thumb injury, though the left fielder insisted he was fine.
Ross Detwiler and Jeff Samardzija traded blows, with Samardzija making only one mistake: Adam LaRoche's second-inning homer.
The Cubs are in town for this Labor Day matinee at Nationals Park.
