If you decided to turn off last night’s Nationals game when they went down 10-3 after just three innings, I wouldn’t blame you in the slightest. However, it turned out to be one of the craziest games the Nationals have ever played, featuring multiple plunkings by the Marlins’ pitching staff, a bench-clearing brawl, and six ejections drawn out over 9 innings. By the end of the seventh inning last night, both managers were sent to the showers, along with four of their players. It was the sort of game that had a performance art feel to it, as if you were just waiting to see what might happen next.
