• Nationals Park. The next-to-last home game of the season. Chien-Ming Wang's first professional hit. Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez's 2,843rd hit. Drew Storen's 41st save of the season. A great day in D.C. A 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves. In what will likely be Pudge Rodriguez's last home game in a Nationals uniform, the future-Hall-of-Fame catcher threw out runners no. 12 and 13 in 25 attempts against the then-39-year-old Rodriguez in 2011, catching speedy Braves' outfielder Michael Bourn in the eighth as Atlanta tried desperately to rally. 4-1 Nationals after eight and then...

STOREN WARNING!!: Drew Storen takes over in the ninth, looking for save no. 41 of 2011. Chipper Jones grounds out to second. ONE! Dan Uggla reaches on a single in spite of a diving effort by Danny Espinosa. Brian McCann pops up to Desmond behind third. TWO!! Freddie Freeman goes down swinging. Ballgame. Drew Storen needs just 12 pitches, 9 strikes to retire the Braves' batters, striking out Freddie Freeman to end the game before embracing Rodriguez on the mound in front of 33,986 Nats fans.
