WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Nationals were on a five game winning streak going into yesterday’s series finale against the San Francisco Giants. Dan Haren continued his solid pitching, giving up a mere solo home run over six innings. The Nats scored 3 runs off of Ryan Vogelsong in the 3rd, but only managed [...]
After many years of wanting to, I finally followed the Washington Nationals to Pittsburgh for their annual series against the Pirates in beautiful PNC Park. I made it to the Saturday game. The Racing Presidents were there too for the Great Pierogie Race (Let Teddy Win).
The series went down just as Sam predicted it would [...]
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Washington Nationals continued their strong start at Nationals Park, beating the Chicago White Sox, 5-2. Jordan Zimmermann pitched efficiently, giving up 2 runs over 7 innings. He threw only 90 pitches. He also escaped danger — comebackers and broken bats and was typically nonchalant about it. Another good performance for the [...]

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A day after Bryce Harper lost a ball in the sun, prompting him to note that the Sun Monster was out, the Washington Nationals capitalized on a similar gaffe.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The first game of the 140th season of Yale (1-0) football was a thrilling back and forth battle with the Georgetown Hoyas (2-1) at venerable Multi-Sport Field. The game was not decided until Colin Bibb intercepted an Aaron Aiken pass in the end zone with 33 seconds remaining.

WASHINGTON, D.C. The Washington Nationals continued their rebound from a terrible road trip with another eight run outburst last night. The visiting St. Louis Cardinals could only muster a mere unearned run as the Nats cruised to a 8-1 win.
Edwin Jackson had 10 strikeouts over 8 innings, most of them in the first three [...]
The Washington Nationals just swept the San Francisco Giants, leading to many people suggesting a weather and Nats correlation and perhaps, even causation.
Throwbacks! (Uni-Watch) Dressed as the 1924 Washington Senators, the Nats defeated the “New York Giants” on a walk-off fielders choice? Adam LaRoche hit a double-play ball, but the Giants first baseman couldn’t handle [...]
