The away record is poor and the home record is equally brutal. Here’s looking at the three home games which summed up the whole season for the 2020 Washington Nationals.
The Washington Nationals played terrible baseball on the road. The good news about that, they played better on the road than at home. In a wild year where home games didn’t really feel like home games, with piped in crowd noise and cardboard cutouts as fans, there was no home field advantage for the Nationals to latch onto.
With the city of Buffalo stepping up late to offer a home to the Toronto Blue Jays, the early road series was moved to Washington. This meant the Nationals would play their first twelve games at home.
A sweep at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles to end that homestead would put the Nationals off to a 4-8 start and be a sign of things to come.
After this weekend tilt with the Miami Marlins, the away portion of the schedule will be wrapped up and the Nationals return home to play their final eight games of the 2020 season. Currently sitting with a record of 9-16, the Nationals have a run differential of -18 in home games.
Today we spotlight three home games which summed up the season for the Washington Nationals.
