San Francisco Giants 3 WASHINGTON NATIONALS 2
I blame the red jerseys. It’s the playoff opener, wear the home whites!
A few mental mistakes too, like trying to get the lead runner on Jake Peavy’s bunt. Peavy pitched better than Stephen Strasburg, who wasn’t lights out, but didn’t lose the game for the Nats either.
There isn’t an embedded video of the game recap, so we’ll just have to post the highlight:
Bryce Harper hit that home run farther than any other in his career. Sadly, it wasn’t one batter earlier in the previous inning when the bases were loaded. Ian Desmond struck out. He did it again in the 8th.
Harper also had the Nats first hit.
I listened most of the game and watched the last few innings after I got home from work.
Adam Kilgore had a good gamer in The Post:
After rallies fell short in Game 1, the Nats' 96-win romp falls to Jordan Zimmermann. "We have to win that game." http://t.co/ZMqTJ4H4OM

Thomas Boswell’s column wasn’t good.
I said Nats in 4 and that’s already the best case scenario. Game 2 is at 5:37 p.m. on FOX Sports 1 or 106.7 FM/1500 AM. Jordan Zimmermann vs. Nats-biller, Tim Hudson.
