Lannan is no stranger to pitching in September games for the Nationals, but never like this. Never with the energy and electricity that pulses around his team each day as they inch closer to the organization’s first playoff berth since moving to D.C. His role is different than it has been in years past, but he’s back to being a member of their rotation.
“You could definitely feel the difference,” Lannan said. “Just being on this team right now is incredible. You can not only see it but you can feel the chemistry and everything. It’s something special and I’m just proud to be a part of it right now.
“Now I’m just looking forward to the fifth day.”
