Let's say Game 1 was not Howie Kendrick's coming-out party on defense. The Nats 1B, a 2B by trade, let two grounders scoot through him and missed another that a seasoned 1B might have snared. Error #2 led to a Dodger run.

Talk about atonement. It had been a rough defensive series for the veteran Kendrick (three ugly errors), but in one bases-loaded, 10th-inning swing against LA's Joe Kelly, he completely atoned. Kendrick's slam put Washington up to stay, 7-3.
