With the win yesterday the Nats have now won eight games in a row which is good for the clubs second longest winning streak since moving to Washington (the longest was 10 games in 2005).
The club has now crawled its way up to 40 wins, and at 22.5 games back they are actually no longer the team furthest out of a division lead in Major League Baseball. That distinction belongs to our neighbors of the north, the Baltimore Orioles (46-65), who stand 23 games behind the Yankees.
The Nationals are now only three games behind the Kansas City Royals (43-68) for the dubious distinction of the worst club in baseball.
Adam Dunn summed the win streak up best after the game Sunday....
