A Sweep? A Sweep! Didn't get to watch the game, but I can say that this was a delightful result for all Nationals' fans. The Nats came into the series against Florida, hitting only .218 against lefthanders. They had two of their best games offensively, against Olsen and Obermuller. They got a decent start out of Jason Simontacchi, which they will need to see repeated, with Shawn Hill on the mend. They got a save out of Jon Rauch. Right now, the Nats are a patchwork affair, but they held together just fine this weekend. If the Nats had dropped these games, they would already be on a pace to obliterate the '62 Mets all-time worst won-loss record. Instead, things are looking up at RFK. The division-leading Atlanta Braves come into town next, for a real test.
