Playoff celebration turns to tears for Nats fans

Washington Nationals fans celebrate a historic day: the franchise's first playoff game at Nationals Park, but leave disappointed with an 8-0 loss.

The Washington Nationals play their first home playoff game at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. against the Saint Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012. Fans stood in line early in the morning to buy some of the 829 standing-room-only tickets, which were being sold for $30 each. As fans entered the stadium they were given red "W" rally towels.
