The Nationals, again. Hooray.

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, it’s the Nationals, that team Bryce Harper used to play for that doesn’t really have a legacy outside of early playoff losing. Well, they’re back for the second of many times they’ll face the Phillies (and Bryce Harper) this year. Last time, they had to rely on the Phillies’ wilted bullpen to win them one game out of a two-game set in D.C. This time, they’ll have to find a way to win in a stadium full of Phillies fans! So, exactly like last time, really.
