So far in the 2011 season, the Washington Nationals have had a fairly consistent formula for when they’ve won ballgames: Decent starting pitching, score five runs or more, and get dominant relief pitching. In nine of their 12 wins going into Sunday’s game with the San Francisco Giants the Nationals had scored five or more runs.
The formula worked again Sunday, as Washington got six solid innings Continue reading

WASHINGTON – It was a tough Saturday for the Washington Nationals as they lost to the San Francisco Giants, 2-1, in the second contest of a four game series.
Before the game, the Nationals informed the media and fans know that third baseman Ryan Zimmerman will be out at least six weeks, following surgery to repair a torn muscle in his abdomen. He has not played Continue reading

Jason Marquis dominated the San Francisco Giants Friday night. (A.Amobi)
WASHINGTON – Last season was one for Jason Marquis to forget with the Washington Nationals.
Marquis was injured for much of 2010 and just downright awful at times. The end result was that he was ineffective most of the time and suffered through one of his worst campaigns in his major league Continue reading
Maybe a couple days off was all that Ian Desmond needed.
In his first game back from paternity leave and the birth of his first child, the shortstop homered and tripled, scoring two runs, to lead the Washington Nationals over the streaking New York Mets 4-3, before 15,142 at Nationals Park.
The win halts the Nats losing streak at three games and ends the Mets winning streak at six. The Nationals Continue reading
"You know, it’s a game of inches sometimes." — Nats manager Jim Riggleman
Washington, D.C. — Sean Burnett has been one of manager Jim Riggleman’s most trusted relievers the last two seasons, getting his job done many more nights than not. In the ninth inning last night, it was a "not."
Burnett gave up three straight singles to start the inning to load the bases and, with Drew Storen warmed up Continue reading
In my latest for MASNSports.com, I take a look at the Washington Nationals upcoming schedule, where after they complete the ongoing series with the New York Mets, they host the World Series champion San Francisco Giants before setting out on a 10-day, nine-game road trip against Philly, Florida and Atlanta.
It would be a brutal test regardless, but made even more daunting by the fact the team is Continue reading
"We just couldn’t put a zero on the board there. That was an important inning." manager Jim Riggleman, on the two-run sixth for the Mets.
Washington, D.C. — As has been the case all season long, the Washington Nationals got an effort from their starting pitcher that "kept them in the game." But not enough hits and the failure of two left-handed pitchers to do their jobs resulted in another Continue reading

There’s been a lot of attention paid to the Washington Nationals won-loss record, hovering around .500 the first few weeks at the start of the season. If they can’t find a way to beat teams like the Pittsburgh Pirates they certainly won’t end up there.
When the Nats don’t score five runs or more runs in a game, they don’t win. And they continued that trend last night in the Steel City, losing 4 Continue reading
The Washington Nationals currently sit in third place in the National League East, four and a half games behind the Philadelphia Phillies with a .500 record of 10-10 after 20 games, roughly one-eighth of the season. Their Pythagorean W-L (based on run differential) is 9-11, so on that hand the Nats’ record isn’t really an aberration.
Or is it?
The Nats have heavily loaded their wins with runs. Continue reading
