Regarding (9-7) Washington Baseball Team Losses

July 8, 2016

Last night’s (9-7) loss to the New York Mets is not even in the same stratosphere as two other Washington baseball losses cited below from a post after one of them in 2012. I was not around, at least not posting (no internet) in 1925.

However, the Wilmer Flores led New York Mets (9-7) win, leaves the New York team just three games behind the “refuse to pull away” Washington Nationals, just two in the loss column in the N.L.East

The relevant part of the (9-7) Washington baseball history posted in 2012 is below.

The Cardinals won their fourth decisive game in the past two seasons (they are (6-0) facing elimination in those years) staging an incredible four run rally in the top of the ninth inning to eliminate the Washington Nationals, winning (9-7). Daniel Descalso, who also delivered a big hit in the Cardinals’ incredible Game 6 2011 triumph, delivered a two out, two run single to tie the game at seven. Shortstop Pete Kozma followed with a two run single and the Cardinals were on their way to San Francisco where they will begin NLCS rematches of both 25 and 10 years ago vs the San Francisco Giants.

The Washington Senators won Washington’s only World Series in 1924, beating the New York Giants. The great Walter Johnson was the winning pitcher in relief. The next year, the Pirates overcame a (3-1) series deficit, overcoming a three run Washington lead with five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to win (9-7). They beat Walter Johnson in the process. Now, 87 years later, the Washington D.C. area loses another deciding game by the same (9-7) score.
