Nationals skipper Dusty Baker did not manage Wednesday’s game against the Mets due to a death in his family. Bench coach Chris Speier took over the managerial duties and guided the Nationals to a 1-0 victory at Nationals Park, thanks to a monster home run by Wilson Ramos. Speier acknowledged he was emotional during the game and dedicated the victory to Baker.
