🏀Mystics: Despite Tina Charles having her fifth 30-point, 10-rebound performance of the season on Tuesday, the Mystics fell to the Las Vegas Aces, again, this time 93–83. We can’t take these second-half lapses anymore. Womp.

  • With the loss, the Mystics dropped out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the WNBA standings. Let’s turn this around tonight at 10 p.m. ET against the Phoenix Mercury. 

⚾️Nationals: The Nats, on the other hand, snapped a seven-game skid on Tuesday and then completed the two-game series sweep of the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday. First baseman Josh Bell hit a three-run homer off Nat-turned-Jay pitcher Brad Hand to lift Washington to the 8–5 (curly) W. Sweet, sweet victory.

🏈Washington Football Team (WFT): The WFT are looking for their first preseason win tomorrow at 8 p.m. ET against the Cincinnati Bengals, and third-string quarterback Kyle Allen is ready to play for the first time since his season-ending ankle injury last year. Interesting.

Off the gridiron, the organization has narrowed the new team name down to three possibilities. Out with it already!
