"We dug our own hole, and we just couldn’t dig out of it."
(Davey Johnson, via NatsInsider, 9/23/2013)
Cardinals 4, Nationals 3: They dug their own grave. Seems only fitting that the postseason dreams of the 2013 Nats would be officially snuffed out against the Cardinals.
Oh, what could have been. Just like every year: there's always next year.
