  Washington Nationals left fielder Michael Morse tries to catch a double hit by St. Louis Cardinals' Pete Kozma during the eighth inning of Game 2 of the National League division baseball series, Monday, Oct. 8 in St. Louis.

The Washington Nationals may have lost Game 2 of the National League Division Series against the Cardinals in St. Louis, but Nats fever isn't letting up amongst the fans in D.C. Some die-hard fans at a watch party at The Fairgrounds near the ballpark last night said they'll be back Wednesday to watch Game 3, even though it's in the middle of the afternoon.

With the series tied 1-to-1 between the Nats and the Cardinals, a postal worker watching the game with his co-workers — who asked not to be identified — says he plans to take a break from delivering mail to catch Wednesday's tie breaker. 

Meanwhile, a superstitious Tony from Arlington will be at the home game wearing his lucky hat, which he believes has helped the Nats get this far.

"I have the same hat that I've worn since 2008 for each game that I've gone to, so hopefully it keeps working," he said. "Usually when we're there it works, sometimes it doesn't, but we'll keep going with it."

Tony's hat may have proved lucky for Nats fans who will be taking a taxi to Wednesday's game. Cabs will not be allowed to charge additional fees during the playoffs — as they had requested — the D.C. Taxicab Commission ruled last week.
