Syracuse Chiefs, AAA International League (26-35)
Pitching Report:Ross Detwiler: Thursday he threw 6 1/3 innings of four-hit, two-walk, two-run ball, lowering his ERA to 5.13, and hopefully his terrible month of May (1-5, 8.70 ERA) is behind him. So far in June (two starts), he’s 2-0 with a 2.19 ERA and .200 batting average against.

After Saturday’s game, Jayson Werth said the most important thing was to get a win Sunday “any way we can.”
It wouldn’t be until the ninth inning that the Nats would find a way to take the lead and get that important win.
With one out in the ninth, Matt Stairs got his fourth pinch-hit of the year and Alex Cora followed with a hit of his own. Brian Bixler, Continue reading
Twenty-two of the Washington Nationals games this season have been decided by one run. Last night against the San Diego Padres was no different. But this time, the Nats got two runs in the first and John Lannan and a trio of relievers made them stand up, as they beat the Padres 2-1 before 25,027 at Petco Park.
The one-run win increases the Nationals record in such games to 9-13, and the Nats Continue reading
With Sean Burnett struggling to even get lefties out right now, and Doug Slaten on the D.L. where he mercifully can’t allow any inherited runners to score, what options do the Nats have for left-handed relievers?
Well, Syracuse doesn’t really have any options. Atahualpa Severino is on the 40-man roster, but he just came back from injury last week and in four outings has posted a 10.80 ERA, Continue reading
Following last night’s lackluster 7-3 loss to the San Diego Padres, Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman had some pointed comments, but they were couched in a veil of apology."It was not a good game. The effort and intensity’s there, but it was just not a good game. We had a couple things happen on the bases. We walked people. It just was not a pretty game. I don’t know how else to say it." Continue reading
Perhaps lost a little bit in the Harpermania is something else going on in Hagerstown. A slight, left-handed 19-year old named Robbie Ray is completely dominating his opponents. Though he is still of tender age, Ray is proving – along with his better known teammate — that he may soon be in need of tougher competition.
Ray, 6’2", 170, has made six starts for Low-A Hagerstown. His record is Continue reading
It’s hard to win baseball games when you can’t score runs. Every mistake is magnified. Every runner left on base is another wasted opportunity. Every pitch thrown by an overworked bullpen puts the game on the line.
The Washington Nationals found out again — the hard way — how difficult it is to win baseball games when you only score one run, as Matt Cain struck out 11 and the San Francisco Continue reading
Jordan Zimmermann accomplished something something his teammates couldn’t do the last two games: drive in a runner from third with less than two outs. He also held the San Francisco Giants to one run on five hits to lead the Washington Nationals to a 2-1 win before another capacity crowd of 41,786 at AT&T Park.
The win evens the Nats record so far on this 11-game road trip to 3-3, and puts their Continue reading
The big news yesterday and today should have been the MLB Entry Draft. Unfortunately, Washington Nationals uber-prospect Bryce Harper took matters into his own, well, lips, garnering attention not for the home run he hit yesterday against the Greensboro Grasshoppers (Grasshoppers? Really?), but for the kiss he blew toward Greensboro pitcher Zachary Neal as he trotted toward home plate.
Harper Continue reading
LEADOFF WALK IN 13TH COMES AROUND TO SCORE WINNING RUN
On a day where the Washington Nationals hope they acquired pieces of their future on Draft Day, the team of the present let another late lead slip away, surrendering a 4-0 lead, getting tied in the eighth inning, and eventually losing to the San Francisco Giants 5-4 in 13 innings, before a capacity crowd at AT&T Park.
All the positive vibes Continue reading
