OK, fine. The Nats got a 12-4 beatdown in St. Louis. They leave the gateway city with the NLDS tied at one game apiece. This is not the end of the world, Nats town. The 2012 Nats had a .593 winning percentage on the road, but they have a .617 winning percentage back on at Nats Park. As luck would have it, the Nats need to win two out of the next three games to win this series. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s not like they are being asked to do anything that we have not already seen them do this year.
Or, as someone helpfully asked: https://twitter.com/DavidHuzzard/status/255493169360281600
The Nats have won the first two games of a three-game series 16 times. This doesn’t count four-game series where they won the first two games. Nor does this count three-game series that they won, but split the first two games.
I am confident.
