Major League Baseball: Show the Washington Nationals' first playoff game since 1933 on local TV

The Washington Nationals are playing in their first home playoff game since 1933, yet the only way to watch the game is through pay TV packages that have MLB Network. Moreover, the Nationals are playing in a publicly subsidized $600+ million stadium. MLB needs to do the right thing and air the game on local broadcast television so fans who can't afford to go to the game or can't afford expensive cable or satellite service can see history!
