St. Louis therapy dog makes good on NLCS wager, reps Nationals gear

Friendly wagers are one of the best parts of sports. They’re even more fun when they involve two very good boys.

Thor, a black lab therapy dog from Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, challenged Tabby, a German Shepherd therapy dog at Children’s National Hospital in Washington, D.C., to a friendly bet on the Nats-Cardinals NLCS best of seven series. The bet was settled not too long after it began.

Since the Nationals swept the Cardinals, Thor had to wear a Nationals’ bandana to work, courtesy of Tabby.

Sports bets gone haywire- they’re not just for humans!

Howie Kendrick Named NLCS MVP After Nationals Sweep Cardinals

Washington Nationals infielder Howie Kendrick took home the National League Championship Series MVP award on Tuesday after the Nats swept the St. Louis Cardinals to win the NL pennant. 

The 36-year-old went 5-of-15 with four RBI and four runs. His RBI single gave the Nats an insurance run in a 2-0 win over St. Louis in Game 1. He also led the Nats offense in Game 3 with three doubles, three RBI and two runs in an 8-1 victory.

The series continues an excellent October for Kendrick, who smacked a go-ahead grand slam in the 10th inning of Washington’s 7-3 comeback win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 5 of the NLDS.

Per MLB Stats, Kendrick is also the third-oldest player to win the NLCS MVP award, which has been in existence since 1977

Congratulations to him and his team.
