Plus, Dylan Crews spotted in DC and a minor league recap.
Good Morning Washington Nationals Fan,
Here are the latest headlines and analyses around the Washington Nationals and Major League Baseball for today, July 21th. My name is Haden Raymer and this is your morning briefing. Today’s briefing is going to just be your minor league recap as I have family visiting for the weekend.
Leading today’s Morning Briefing: Nats take on the Giants
The Nats return home from a road trip tonight to take on the Giants. Tonight’s matchup is LHP Alex Wood taking on RHP Jake Irvin. The Nats are throwing their three young arms against a quality Giants offense.
Game one begins at 7:05 p.m. on MASN2.
Dylan Crews is in DC
I mean not to get too speculative here, but the Nationals number one draft pick is in DC. Chances are he’ll be at one of this weekend’s games.
Coming home from our Florida trip and the boys ran into Nationals 1st Round draft pick Dylan Crews!!! @DavidBsB02@BrianSlaught24
