Reasons to Believe the Washington Nationals Can Still Make Big 2nd-Half Surge
Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Summer is officially here. For the Washington Nationals, things just got real.

The Nationals are currently 39-39. They are still in second place in the NL East standings at 5.5 games behind the Atlanta Braves, and also 5.5 games behind the leaders in the NL Wild Card standings.

But with 84 games remaining on their 2013 schedule, this team can ill afford to lose any more ground in the playoff race. For the Nationals, the second half begins now.

With that sentiment in mind, here are five reasons to believe the Washington Nationals can still make a big second-half surge.
