The losing pitcher for the Nationals was Ryan Wagner.
The pitcher who got the save for the Cubs? Ryan Dempster.
Cubs second baseman Ryan Theriot sent the game to extra innings with an RBI single.
I remember back to August 1, 1992 when the Dodgers sent out a lineup with three consecutive Erics: Young, Karros, and Davis.
So the question is: can the Nats top the Dodgers 63-99 mark in 1992?
Also on July 4, 2005, the Dodgers had three straight Jasons (not even cheating with Jayson Werth) when they went with Jason Phillips at catcher, Jason Grabowski in right field, and Jason Repko in center. Jim Tracy tried it again on July 6.
