Baseball Is Just The Best

chart-42

That chart doesn’t do this game justice. That was incredible. From Rich Hill to Julio Urias to Chris Heisey to Kenley Jansen throwing 50 pitches… and then the best pitcher of his time finally getting his legendary October moment.

For the Nationals, another tough loss ending a great season, losing by the thinnest of margins to another great team. They should have nothing to be ashamed of, even though this isn’t how they wanted it all to go.

What a spectacle. What a sport. Baseball is really just the best.
