Dusty Baker's Nationals fell one win short of the franchise record, but there will be postseason baseball in Washington next Friday, so that's just fine... Eh, 97 wins is still pretty good. Gio Gonzalez's rough outing was a little concerning, as Washington's left-hander gave up seven hits, three walks, and six earned runs in 4 1⁄3 innings, and the Nationals left a lot of men on base, blowing a couple bases-loaded opportunities, but they still won 97 games this season, which, again, is pretty good.
