Live Blogging Game 1 of the NLDS (#1)

BaseballOkay.  I’ve been much too serious in recent posts here on More to Come…  So, to remedy that problem, let’s live blog Game 1 of the National League Division Series between our Washington Nationals and (Claire’s) Los Angeles Dodgers!

Go Nats!

I’ll be at tomorrow’s game in person, so it seemed appropriate to carry on a running conversation with readers online, just as if I were at the ballpark.

I’ll post several times during the game.

Thank God I missed 99% of FOX Sports 1 pre-game.  The basket of deplorables on that show (Pete Rose! A-Rod!) is just too much to bear.  But so FOX.

5:39 p.m. – First pitch strike from Max!  And we quickly have a strikeout!

5:41 p.m. – Well giving up that home run to Corey Seager didn’t take long.  (Only player who can give Trea Turner a run for his money on the “looks like he is 12 years old” scale.) Maybe Max got it out of his system early.  The gopher ball has been his problem all year long.  Don’t give up too many more, Max…we are facing Kershaw tonight.

5:45 p.m. – Nice double play to get out of any further trouble.  On to the bottom of the first.

5:48 p.m. – Interesting…Harper is batting second in the order tonight.  Maybe it will get him going.

5:50 p.m. – First battle of the rookies goes to Seager.

5:52 p.m. – For those wondering about which Clayton Kershaw might show up, take a look at this blog post from a regular Nats blogger that is generally worrisome for Nats fans.

5:56 p.m. – Well, it wasn’t efficient, but it was effective.  Kershaw strikes out the side.  I’ll wrap up this post and go on to #2 in the thread.

Racing Presidents

George, Tom, Abe, Teddy, Bill, and Cal…your Washington Nationals “Racing Presidents”

More to come…
