Surprise - Nats don't blow game

After last year's mega-choke in the NLDS to the Cards, I expect the Nats to lose tight games like Tuesday night. They managed to avoid that today even though they blew an 8th inning lead. 

Best part of today's game was Bumgarner pitching like an All Star 

If anyone is wondering about the specifics of the NLDS, it was an epic choke with 4 runs in the top of the 9th to give away a 2-run lead -- just like the dodgers in game 165 of 1962 

As is so often the case, Buster Posey delivered in the clutch, per the SF Chronicle's blog post --

The Giants tied the game, and got Bumgarner a no-decision, after Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro walked with one out in the eighth. Gonzalez walked Pagan. Scutaro took a walk from from Drew Storen knowing his 19-game hit streak might be doomed.
Buster Posey then grounded a single through the hole to scoring Pagan and tie the game 1-1.
