WASHINGTON -- Everything about the atmosphere at RFK Stadium for last night's series opener between the Orioles and Washington Nationals spoke to just another game over the course of a long baseball season.

There was no evidence of a neighborhood rivalry, no big-game environment, no prolonged excitement for the first eight innings. It was what you'd expect when Game 42 of the season brought together two clubs that entered last night in last place in their respective divisions.
