Short-Run Historic: Nationals 11, Dodgers 2

The last time the Nationals swept the Dodgers, they were called the Expos and the year was 1998. Montreal did it in three games from August 4 through 6, the first one interesting and the other two not. The 1998 Expos finished 65-97; the current generation of Nats will likely come close to that, maybe a bit more in the loss column, but the bottom line is that both Dodger teams are beleaguered despite their marquee players in the lineup. Manny Ramirez homered in the second to give Clayton Kershaw an instant 2-0 lead, but he imploded immediately for five runs in the bottom of the frame, capped by a three-run jack to Elijah Dukes. More misery awaited the Dodgers in late innings as the Nats cadged runs in every inning form the fifth on. About the only good thing to be said about the evening was that the Snakes were idle.
Additional fun factoids about the current losing streak: Also, I have to make mention here of the fact that Christian Guzman hit for the cycle. Christian Guzman!
