Phillies Try, But Can’t Spoil Nats Fun
The Phillies win, the Nationals win the NL East, the Phillies take the field to celebrate the 2-0 victory, the Nationals head into the clubhouse to pop the champagne.
The Nationals emerged later to party with the fans.
I’ve never seen anything like it.
“That was the first time we won and got beat,” Charlie Manuel said.
I heard a lot of comments about how loud Nationals Park was last night. It was loud for here, but I think even Jayson Werth would admit it didn’t come close to the noise at Citizens Bank Park when the Phillies clinched their first division title in 2007. Now that was crazy loud. That was energetic. But I’m sure the Nationals couldn’t care less about that. They’re in the playoffs. The Phillies aren’t.
