Washington Nationals: Top 10 Games Of 2016 (10-6)
By Ricky Keeler
Today, we bring you part 1 of our countdown of the top ten Washington Nationals games of 2016
Throughout the 2016 season, the Washington Nationals gave their fans a lot of great games en route to winning 95 games and the NL East title. On this Thanksgiving, every Nats fan should be thankful that this organization has won three division titles in five years and continues to put a consistent, winning product on the field year in and year out.
As the Washington Nationals got to 95 wins, there were many games that had fans on the edge of their seats, and had great excitement up until the final at-bat of the game. Starting today, we will do a two part series and rank the top ten games of the 2016 season. Part two (games 5 through 1) of this series will be published on Saturday morning.
There were many moments throughout this season that did not make this list. Some of them include Bryce Harper’s 100th career home run, which was his first career grand slam against the Braves back in April, a franchise record nine-run fourth inning against the Braves in a win back in September, or Stephen Drew’s walk-off triple against the Padres in July.
So, without further ado, here are the first five games on my top ten list. Plus, all of us at District On Deck would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and we are thankful that you choose to read the articles that are on this site on a daily basis.
