The Nationals Are a HUGE Draw

Maybe it was the Washington Nationals (minus flamethrowing newbie Stephen Strasburg) and their 46-59 record. Or that it was 99 degrees outside at game time. Or the SB 1070-related protest outside the gates.


Or maybe it was just that these two teams, the D-backs and Nats, just aren’t having good years. In any case, an attendance of 16,793 was announced at Monday night’s game at Chase Field. That's the second-smallest crowd of the season.


Only the July 8 game against Florida (16,664) drew fewer customers.


There are three games left in this series after Monday. Will the mark be broken?
