Remember on Tuesday night when the Washington Nationals hit six home runs off the Chicago Cubs?
At Nats Park w wife/friends. Said:”Too bad, we missed 1st 6 HR-game in D.C. MLB history since 1901. It was LAST nite.” So they did it again.

It took over 110 years and almost 80 seasons to reach that mark and the Nats did it again less than 24 hours later. Wow.
Bryce Harper hit two of those homers, earning the coveted “Must C” embeddable video on MLB.com:
You know what would be funny? Finding a Cubs pitcher in the offseason and playing the “rapid ascent” submarine horn for him. He’d probably collapse into the fetal position.
Sorry, I probably just jinxed the Nats to being shutout tonight.
Roger Bernadina hit a homer before Harper’s first, then Adam LaRoche hit one two batters later in the 3rd. Three out of four batters homered in one inning! Then in the 7th, Ian Desmond and Danny Espinosa went back to back. Harper’s second homer came in the sixth.
Gio Gonzalez pitched 7 shutout innings for his 18th win.
The Nats clinched another series last night. There isn’t a better story in baseball than this Nats team.
Hard Times Cafe is going to go broke on giving out wings.
And once again, WGN goes with the intentional comedy of Americas Funniest Videos instead of the unintentional comedy of the Cubs.
