got it done in game one. it wasn't easy but who said it was. this is the key point of the game. ryan matthews is in a jam. bases juiced. five, four, flee double play. he got out of a no out bases loaded jam on two pitches. and then as it seems to happen, tile are moore, a rookie, drives in two and the nats go on to win 3-2 in st. louis. a very impressive comeback win late. now, again, nats had 98 wins in the regular season, most in baseball. but when you do this in the post-season and it is your first time ever in the post- season and you do it late in the eighth inning, pretty darned impressive. >> special. >> it is very special. and in baltimore, russell martin ruining the party. >> good last name.
