May 6, 2019

What else is going to go wrong for the Washington Nationals?

After losing two of three to the Philadelphia Phillies, the Nationals were forced to spend an extra night in Philadelphia because the plane they were going to take to Milwaukee for their next series experienced engine trouble.

The team sat on the tarmac into the middle of the night before de-planing and returning to check back into their hotel.

The Nationals finally got off the ground Monday morning. They have a 7:40 first pitch against the Brewers, and one can only imagine how tired some of the everyday players will feel after this ordeal.
