⚾️Baseball: The Nationals won a series for the first time this season, taking two of three games from the St. Louis Cardinals. Yesterday’s 6–0 shutout featured pitcher Joe Ross throwing six scoreless innings and Mr. National himself, Ryan Zimmerman, hitting a two-run homer.

  • See if those freakin’ bats can keep working when the Nats take on the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight at 7:05 p.m. ET.

⚽️Soccer: Cherry blossom kits are on the docket and the Spirit are back home at Audi Field for tonight’s 7 p.m. ET Challenge Cup match against expansion team Racing Louisville FC. After forward Trinity Rodman’s sensational pro debut last week, we can’t wait to see what else she has up her sleeve cleat.

On Saturday night, it’s United’s turn to show off in their MLS season opener against NYC FC. And hopefully new GM Lucy Rushton will leverage her analytics background to fast track United’s rebuild.
