Coming off a three game winning streak, the Washington Nationals are on a roll. Pulling ahead in their division by 2.5 games over the rest of the teams, they look to be the real deal.
Of course, it's still early in the season and they have a history of cooling off after hot starts. But it's promising and that's what fans of the franchise need. They need promise, they need hope. This team, needs to keep winning.
Since Friday, the Nationals have swept the Braves 7-4, 8-4 and 7-2. That's 22 runs in 3 games for this young and surprsingly efficient team. They'll head to Miami today to face the Marlins and hope to keep the streak alive by handing Miami a loss.
Let's hope they can keep this up. It's a revival of DC Sports this year. The Capitals making it to the playoffs, the Redskins acquiring their football savior RG3 and the Nationals playing better baseball than anyone ever thought was possible.
