Nats Now Have Highest Team Batting Average In NL, Colorado Second


.
It was announced today that the Washington Nationals now lead the National League in team batting average, dropping the Colorado Rockies to second place .... the Nats team errorless streak has reached 9 games, and they are only 13 innings away from breaking the franchise record of 97 innings set 28 years ago .... Frank Robinson said this was the finest defensive team he has ever been associated with in spring training, and the team's .986 fielding average, good for third place, bears that out .... the Nationals have gotten at least 10 hits in a game eight games in a row, and 9 out of the last 10 .... The team's average during this time is .299 and sports a .379 on base percentage .... first baseman Nick Johnson leads the team with a phenomenal .446 on base percentage .... Ryan Church is batting .647 for the road trip .... the last time this franchise won three straight west coast road series was 1987 -- a feat the team can accomplish with a win this afternoon .... Washington is tied for the National League lead in road wins with 11, and is second in the majors behind Chicago .... the Nationals play the Cubs this Friday at home on Friday the 13th .... Vinny Castilla holds the all time major league record for most homeruns on Friday the 13th with 6 .... last night's loss to the Diamondbacks ended a franchise winning streak against Arizona of 10 games .... how good have the Nats played so far? The Phillies are the only team they have played this year that sport a losing record, and at that, they are only 3 games below .500 .... removing games played against the Nationals, the combined record of the seven teams we've played so far is 112-84, a .571 winning percentage .... In his career, closer Chad Cordero has inherited 25 runners, and NONE have come around to score

So much endless information ... so much fun to read
