WASHINGTON, June 13 (UPI) -- The Washington Nationals' charge to first place in the National League East has captured the hearts of fans in the nation's capital.

The Nationals played 13 games against four opponents and won 12 of them, including Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Seattle Mariners, their 10th win in a row and establishing themselves as legitimate playoff contenders.

"Nobody could have foreseen (such a successful) home stand," Nationals Manager Frank Robinson told the Washington Post. "I know I couldn't. It's just been an unbelievable home stand for everybody -- the organization, the players and the fans."
