The Game of the Year

If the Washington Nationals edge their way into the postseason, if they nose another team out by a single game, they will look back on Sunday's game in Chicago and say, "That's why we're in." Even if they win the division by a comfortable margin, or narrowly lose out, they'll look back on their 5-4 win and know that it was one of their keys to a successful season.
