There was a lot of excitement in the air for last night’s Nats broadcast as they knew that lots of people were tuning in to see if DC could clinch the division. Nats pregame had some nice words about the Navy Yard shooting and following that MASN showed Ray Knight’s lost audition tape for “Gran Torino”:
