WASHINGTON - If not a rivalry, it's certainly a tradition.

For the sixth year in a row, the Nationals' Racing Presidents will face off against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates' Pierogies when the Washington Nationals take on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Nationals Park this week.

During the games, Teddy, Abe, George, Tom and Bill will square off against Jalapeņo Hannah, Cheese Chester, Sauerkraut Saul and Oliver Onion.

And if previous encounters are any indication, it could get ugly.

Take a look at the video below from May, when the presidents participated in the Great Pierogie Race when Pittsburgh hosted.

Who do you think will when this time around?

The Nationals take on the Pirates at Nationals Park Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with each game at 7:05 p.m.
