There’s usually no Gatorade showers on the road, and there was not an exception for Isaac Galloway in Nationals Park.
It was a long time coming for the 28-year-old rookie, who played 11 seasons in the Miami Marlins minor league system before finally cracking the active roster in mid-2018.
Wei-Yin Chen surrendered two runs in 5 2/3 innings, and was matched on the hill by Jerry Rodriguez, who also allowed two earned runs (but also two unearned).

Tayron Guerrero and Drew Steckenrider both blew saves, in the seventh and ninth innings respectively. Steckenrider eventually was the winning pitcher of record when Galloway stroked a two-run single into center field in the top of the 10th. Brett Graves came in for the save, pitching a perfect 10th inning.
In the midst of all that, JT Riddle collected four RBI, going three-for-four with a double and a home run.
It’s a heck of a way to end our list. I hope you enjoy watching these games on MLB.TV as we bide our time in wait for the next season to be here.
