Nationals trivia quiz: Highs and lows

How well do you know your Nationals history? If you tried our two previous trivia quizzes (the first highlighting opening days, the second all about the postseason), you may already have an idea just how proficient you are at these things.

But whether you aced those quizzes or failed them spectacularly, it's time to get back on the horse and give it another try. Today we present the latest edition of Nats trivia, this time looking at some of the most notable highs and lows for the franchise since it arrived in town in 2005.

As always, the answers are listed at the bottom. So be careful not to scroll too far down before you've given yourself a chance to read all 20 questions.
