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 [...]

Tonight is annual Home Run Derby as part of the All-Star Game festivities at Citi Field New Shea Stadium in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.,. Bryce Harper will be the first Washington Nationals representative in the Derby and his father, Ron, is pitching to him (The Wash. Times).

The Washington Nationals finally won again, beating the San Francisco Giants 2-1 in 10 innings. I missed out on the last two innings because I went for a bike ride.

The Washington Nationals just completed a miserable road trip out west with a 2-1 win [...]
That was a weird weekend for the Washington Nationals. After taking the first two of a four game series at the San Diego Padres, the Nats lost a tight one on Saturday evening. They didn’t hit (recurring theme) and when they did they ran the bases poorly. Jordan Zimmerman got a hard luck loss — [...]
Yay, we have day baseball today, after all those late nights. The Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants on TV – MASN2 or if you are outside of the Nats footprint, MLB TV has it. Sadly, my office has neither station, so MLB Gameday Audio is how I’ll listen to it initially. Stephen Strasburg vs. [...]
The Potomac Nationals have been through several incarnations in the 4 decades they have played in Northern Virginia. Last Friday, the P-Nats commemorated there tenure as the Alexandria Dukes by wearing and wore 1978 replica uniforms. They wore a blue, orange and white combination , as seen in this Baseball Reference Dukes entry. At some [...]
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 [...]
From Jeff Krulik’s “The Legend of Merv Conn” and in honor of the Nats winning in their Washington Senators throwbacks over the San Francisco Giants in their New York Giants throwbacks last night.
I’ll try to blog more about the Nats win over the Giants at lunch. Good times.
After too long without a guest prognosticator, the series returns with my friend David, a native-Washingtonian living in San Francisco. Previously we talked about his San Francisco Giants as well as the 49ers whom he did not adopt. The Western division leading Giants visit D.C. this week for a series with the Washington Nationals, leading [...]
Since I last blogged about the Washington Nationals, they finished 6-5 on a western swing, splitting with the Arizona Diamondbacks (lots of HBP on both sides), losing 2 of 3 to the San Francisco Giants and taking 3 of 4 from the San Diego Padres. They are about halfway through an odd stretch of schedule [...]
