Nationals manager Davey Martinez gives piggyback ride to help Asdrúbal Cabrera celebrate 2nd homer

Nationals manager Davey Martinez gives piggyback ride to help Asdrúbal Cabrera celebrate 2nd homer

Davey Martinez has a new job: piggyback ride.

Asdrúbal Cabrera hopped on the Nationals manager Monday night following his second home run of the evening. Cabrera took a ride through a jubilant dugout in what became a rout for the struggling Nationals.

Cabrera homered twice Monday.

The idea was also partially a troll of a new member of the Mets, Brian Dozier. Dozier would hop on stout batting practice pitcher Ali Modami following a home run last season and ride through the dugout. Modami opted out of this season.

The Nationals finally had something to dance about in the dugout after scoring 16 runs Monday night in Citi Field. They are 5-7 on the season.

Christmas in July! Washington Football Team opens online team store

With the re-branding of the Washington Football Team well underway, it’s time to get some new Burgundy and Gold gear to support the squad come September. Several major retailers had previously pulled all Washington-related merchandise before the name change, but now the team itself has launched an online pro shop with a variety of clothes, accessories and collectibles.

Week 1 will be here before you know it, so here are five “must-have” items from the Washington Football Team’s online store:

Summer Sideline Bucket Hat

Look, it's hot outside well into October. Keep your head cool and your face covered with this mesh Washington Football Team bucket hat. “One size fits most,” so you should be good to go!

Women’s Sleeveless Tribute Polo

We told you it was hot outside! Women can cool down with this 100% polyester sleeveless polo complete with the Washington logo and a special technology to reduce body temperature.

On-field Face Covering

Available in burgundy or black, leave no doubt where your allegiance lies and show your team pride while out in public.

Pullover Hoodie

The temperature outside will go down eventually, and hoodies for both men and women will help you get through those cold months later in the season.

Woven Long Sleeve Button-Up

Channel your inner “Top-button Mitch” and get some gear for more formal occasions where a shirt with a collar might be necessary.

…and for households with split-allegiances, check out the “Collectibles” tab for some “House Divided” collages with a few local rivals.
