If you know what I mean...if not watch the video. And enjoy what a few baseball analysts were calling an “exorcism”.
The nat’s “Demon Killing” rally...followed by the relief/celebration.
- Yup. After Ryan Zimmerman was in the batting circle during Robles at bat, Taylor comes up- who has been replaced by Robles. He gets hit by a pitch (which was up for debate as a foul ball but the not enough evidence to overturn)
- After Trea Turner gets out, Zimmerman the original franchise player, actually gets his chance to bat and gets a broken bat loop single. He went to UVA who just want the NCAA title so maybe he was bound to get lucky.
- Rendon, the current franchise player, who hadn't recorded a hit and was batting under .200 in his last few postseasons, battled in the count and as he forced a walk, celebrated a bit which showed some faith in the next guy in the order.
- Juan Soto, the 20 year old phenom, and probably the next franchise Nats player, hits a ball that is probably going to be a single and takes a weird bounce. Brewers outfielder Grisham may have been distracted by the loud crowd and badly misplayed it. Soto perhaps from being so pumped up has poor base-running and gets picked off (although some have argued he got purposefully picked off for the last run to score)
