Maybe something changed, even something big, on Saturday night as the autumn moon rose over the right field stands to get a glimpse of what, far down on planet earth, was causing all that ruckus down at Nationals Park, a place that seldom raises it voice until the heavens take note.
Within a matter of perhaps 15 minutes of lunacy, Game 2 of this National League Division Series changed utterly, from what seemed like an almost certain Chicago Cubs victory to a stunning, ground-shaking, 6-3 Washington Nationals win.
Eighth-inning home runs, first a titanic one by Bryce Harper to tie the score, then a three-run wall-scraping thriller by Ryan Zimmerman to win it, tied this series at a game apiece, but with enormous baseball gravitational pull suddenly on the Nats’ side just when such cause for hope was least expected.
Harper’s homer was a truly special force-of-nature thing. Celestial orbs don’t blink. But if there had been a man in that moon, he might have been forgiven for flinching. Instead, Harper’s blast wasn’t headed toward space, just aimed directly at a picture of Max Scherzer that stands more than 500 feet away on the right field concourse.
Neither Scherzer’s blue nor brown eye was in danger
