Another night, another Olympian visiting the Washington Nationals.
On Wednesday night, Katie Ledecky threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Nationals Park for the third time. On Thursday, another Olympic gold medalist from Montgomery County, Md. performed – wrestler Helen Maroulis made her debut. I will add video of the pitch when it becomes available.
Maroulis proved to be a much needed stopper for the Nationals. Following her first pitch, the Nats shutout the Baltimore Orioles, 4-0, ending a four-game losing streak.
