Best bet on the Tube

Game 3 of the N.L. division series between the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals today ( 10 a.m. on MLB Network) will be the first time the nation’s capital has hosted Major League Baseball postseason action since 1933, when the Senators lost to the New York Giants in the World Series. After averaging about 22,000 fans a game in the 2009 and 2010 seasons, the Nationals drew an average of 30,010 this year. Winning helps, of course. “You could tell, early on, that it was almost more of a social gathering. … Now it’s turned into like some die-hard fans,” Washington first baseman Adam LaRoche said. – Associated Press
