Nats’ Magic Number Stalled at One

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

With a Nats victory last night and a Pirates loss, the Nats’ magic number in the Bryce Harper Sweepstakes Race remains at one. If the Nats win five more and the Pirates lose their last six, they will tie. The Orioles extended their losing streak to 12 games, but being six games back with five games to go, they remain one game shy of the possibility of catching the Nats.

After Tuesday’s games, the standings:
