The Pittsburgh Pirates were originally called the Alleghenys in the 1880s but became the Pirates in 1891. They got their name from a newspaper report that the team had poached players from the Philadelphia Athletics and the name Pirates stuck. The Pirates play in the National League in the Central Division, although they previously played in the East Division from 1969 to 1993. They have played at PNC Park since 2001 after moving from Three Rivers Stadium. Their colors are black, gold and white.
The Pirates have had periods of success. They won three successive NL Pennants from 1901 and captured their first World Series in 1909. There were four more world titles in 1925, 1960, 1971 and 1979, but since then postseason action has been scarce. Three consecutive East Division titles from 1990 did not bring any further success nor did Wild Cards in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
The Washington Nationals were established in 1969 and were originally called the Montreal Expos before moving to Washington in 2005. They presently play at Nationals Park in the National League East Division having moved from the Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium in 2008. Their colors are red, white, and blue.
The Nats first taste of success came in the strange 1981 season. Due to a players' strike the season was split into two halves. The Nationals finished third in their Division in the first half but topped the table in the second half sending them into the postseason for the first time. They won the NL Division Series against the Phillies but lost in the Championship Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Another players' strike would play a role in the 1994 season when they won their Division but the postseason was cancelled. After moving to Washington in 2005 it took a few seasons to establish themselves. Between 2012 and 2017 they finished first in their Division four times but each time losing in the NLDS.
