A Beltway World Series

Baltimore fans will not be popping a champagne cork. The Orioles were defeated by the Yankees from New York. Likewise, a World Series is not what Washington fans will see. The St. Louis Cardinals trounced the Nationals from DC. This year, a Beltway World Series will not be reality. Once again, a Championship in the capital is a fantasy. However, there is a great deal of optimism here. After defeat, both teams must persevere. The Orioles and Nationals look forward to next year.
