Nats’ Slide Continues, Caps Win Finale, Former WFT Draft Pick Dies

The Washigton Nationals have now lost 6 of their last 7 games, folowing a 6-2 loss to the Phillies last night. Former Nat Bryce Harper cracked a homer against his old team, as the Nationals dropped to 13-18 on the season. Trea Turner continued his hot hitting with a 3-for-4 night for Washington, who take on the Phils again tonight starting at 6:35 on Sports Radio 1450.

The Baltimore bullpen gave up 2 runs in the bottom of the 9th and lost to the New York Mets 3-2. The loss spoiled another strong performance from Oriole pitcher John Means, who gave up no runs in 6 innings of work. The 2 teams play again today just after noon.

The Caps beat the Boston Bruins 2-1 last night in the regular season finale. Michael Raffl scored the game-winning goal with just 3 seconds left for the Capitals, who will face Boston in the first round of the NHL Playoffs starting Saturday. The puck drops at 7 on The River 95-3.

And, quarterback Colt Brennan has died. Brennan set records at the University of Hawaii and was a former draft pick of the then-Washington Redskins. After a promising pre-season in 2008, Brennan never took a regular-season snap in the NFL. He was just 37.
