Nine just fine: Red-hot Jays storm back

What a great win for the Blue Jays and a horrific loss for the Red Sox. It’s tough for a Red Sox fan to be positive at this point.

Washington Post: Nationals Stage Massive Comeback

I wonder what the win expectancy was when the Nationals were down 9-1?

Yet the comeback the Washington Nationals staged Tuesday night, capped by a three-run home run by Dan Uggla in the top of the ninth, is the kind around which seasons pivot. Down eight runs in the second inning, the Nationals fought off injuries, errors, and a month’s worth of frustration to beat the Braves, 13-12, on a deep drive to left by a former Braves second baseman whose career was left for dead. The win snapped a six-game losing streak and marked the Nationals’ largest comeback since the franchise moved to Washington in 2005.

Midway through last season, the Braves gave up on Uggla. He could barely hit and had become a shadow of what he once was — one of the best power-hitting second basemen of all time. The Nationals invited him to spring training. Injuries created a roster spot. Braves fans booed him every time he stepped to the plate this series, though Atlanta is paying him more than any other player on its roster.
