Roy Halladay continued his dominance of the Washington Nationals. (C.Nichols/Nats News Network)
Through three innings on Monday, traditional roles were reversed. Livan Hernandez was working quickly, efficiently and dominantly, shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies prodigious offense. On the other hand, defending Cy Young winner Roy Halladay was struggling with his command, throwing a lot of Continue reading
Syracuse Chiefs, AAA International League
Ross Detwiler: His first four starts of the year were fantastic, but since then, it has been poor start after poor start for Detwiler. He’s given up four or more runs in five straight starts, and his ERA has ballooned to 5.77 after his start on the 24th: 3 2/3 IP, 10 H, 8 R (6 ER), 1 BB, 1 K. He needs to turn it around quickly, or a switch Continue reading
In today’s 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres, the Washington Nationals failed physically when presented with opportunities on multiple occasions, but also made several mental mistakes that added to the frustration of watching an imminently winnable game slip away.
Manager Jim Riggleman insists his team is playing good, clean baseball. But when runners are making outs on the base paths and hitting Continue reading
This was just about how you would expect a game between the two worst offenses in the league to go. The Washington Nationals and San Diego Padres combined for three runs, seven hits and five walks, but the biggest hit of all was the very last one.
On the first pitch in the bottom of the ninth, red-hot slugger Michael Morse took Mike Adams’ flat 89-MPH slider deep into the visitors’ bullpen, Continue reading
Lots of folks are asking the question today, in the aftermath of Scott Cousins needlessly ending Buster Posey’s season, if it would make sense for Washington Nationals GM Mike Rizzo to make a phone call to San Francisco Giants GM Brian Sabean to gauge his interest in trading for Pudge Rodriguez or Jesus Flores.
No less an expert than Jim Bowden suggested the very same idea on Twitter.
I certainly Continue reading
There were no bullpen implosions, no late inning heroics. Not much of anything particularly dramatic happened. No, the Washington Nationals 6-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers today was simply the better team playing better, led by their best player and a former Cy Young winning pitcher. Who, adding insult to injury, also hit a home run.
The loss drops the Nationals record to 21-28. It’s their Continue reading
GM Mike Rizzo gave an interview to Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal that was published yesterday, and the gist of the piece was that Rizzo was happy with how his Washington Nationals were playing except hitting with runners in scoring position. In fact, he said exactly that: "We’re playing terrific baseball except for the fact that we’re struggling with runners in scoring position.”Rizzo echoed the Continue reading
BULLPEN ALLOWS FOUR RUNS IN LATE INNINGS SPURRED BY WALKS
The Washington Nationals seemed to have things going for them last night, as they took a 6-3 lead into the late innings with a rested bullpen. But as is their way right now, the Nats couldn’t seal the deal, and the Milwaukee Brewers scored four runs across the seventh and eighth innings to snatch victory from the Nats, 7-6, before 24,722 Continue reading
Last night’s embarrassing loss to the Milwaukee Brewers has most of the scribes in NatsTown penning columns about how the Nats seem to be crashing into oblivion like they did last season. The timing is more or less the same.
The Nats have lost five out of six and eight of 11, dropping their record to a season-low five games below .500 at 21-26, a 72-win pace. With two more games in Milwaukee, Continue reading
GORZELANNY POUNDED FOR THREE HOMERS IN 11-3 LOSS
Monday was an interesting — and busy — day for the Washington Nationals.
First came the reports that P Brian Broderick was claimed by the St. Louis Cardinals, the team that the Nats drafted him from during the Rule 5 draft over the off-season. A little while later, the team announced that 1B Adam LaRoche was indeed placed on the 15-day Disabled Continue reading
