On Monday October 14, the Washington Nationals clinched their first ever National League Championship, punching their ticket to the 2019 World Series for the first time in franchise history. It will be the first World Series hosted in the District of Columbia since 1933.
Prior to their game on Friday October 18 against the New York Rangers, the Capitals will honor the Nats’ accomplishment, with star pitcher Max Scherzer participating in a ceremonial puck drop.

Scherzer, the Nationals’ three-time Cy Young winner, has gone 2-0 in the playoffs this year, with a 1.80 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 20 innings pitched.
Scherzer has been a very vocal supporter of the Caps, even helping lead a “Let’s Go Caps” cheer with teammate Ryan Zimmerman before Game 4 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final in DC.
Much like Nats’ support of the Capitals during their championship run, Caps have been incredibly supportive of the Nationals throughout their playoff run, from Ovi throwing out the first pitch during the NLDS, to players attending the games in-person, to the team wearing matching Nats t-shirts.
