And all of it began on a blustery night at Nationals Park in Game 5 of the 2012 NLDS when the Cardinals mounted the largest comeback ever for in a do-or-die playoff game. The Nats and their fans still aren't quite over that one, even though a series of playoff deathblows have been added to the list. Their win on Wednesday night in Game 5 against the Dodgers, which pushed them to the NL Championship Series for the first time in team history, certainly helped assuage the pain.
