Houston Astros at Washington Nationals MLB Matchup
In the dugout celebration following his eighth-inning World Series home run Wednesday, Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Eaton plopped on the bench with teammate Howie Kendrick and the duo simultaneously hit the throttle on an imaginary race car.
Laugh at the concept of a high-powered machine with dual gas pedals if you must, but the Nationals have been operating with an abundance of force in these playoffs, long before they took a 2-0 lead in the World Series over the favored Houston Astros.
The Nationals will return home for Game 3 on Friday two victories away from the first title in franchise history, not necessarily in need of the love from their own fans but they will take it. Washington is on an eight-game postseason winning streak and only two of those games were at Nationals Park.
“We know the series isn’t over,” Nationals third baseman Howie Kendrick said. “I think it would have been a success if we only came in and stole one game, obviously, playing at this stage and playing with the crowd and at their home field. But for us to obviously steal two games from them at their home field is great. But we still have a job to finish and we have two more to go.”
