Hours before Nationals Park hosted Game 5 of the Washington Nationals vs. Chicago Cubs, Exelon – the parent company of Pepco – stepped up to cover the costs needed to keep Washington Metro open past midnight.
Exelon is also the parent company of ComEd, electric service providers in Chicago. So it was only natural that Exelon ensured Washington metro area fans of either team could revel in every minute of the high-stakes game.
Washington metro-area fans rejoiced at Exelon's intervention, especially as the 9th inning stretched into 1 a.m.
Exelon and Pepco are all over Nats Park tonight. Thanks for the ride home! pic.twitter.com/lCmKZVG3zW— Ktallen (@ktadc88) October 13, 2017
