We’re just past the halfway point of the Washington Nationals’ baseball season and they are not doing that bad. Their record is 37-72. Not bad*. They are only 25.5 games out from the division leaders the Philadelphia Phillies and 23.5 games out from the wild card spot.

They have been playing better lately, after getting a new manager by the name of Jim Riggleman, who is being called the interim manager. He replaced Manny Acta on July 12 and the team has recently gone on a few hot winning streaks including one recent and still going as of this writing. This is a five game winning streak, which began with two wins over the Pirates, and then their first sweep of the year, over the Marlins. The Nationals have displayed a series of comebacks lately, contrary to their  bullpen’s “ability” to lose games in the late going.

Hopefully their success will continue into next year and we’ll have some good divisional competition from the Nationals.
