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
There are a lot of studies out there that suggest that the anecdotal concept of "clutch" does not really exist. As emotional beings, fans tend to remember the good (a player coming through with runners in scoring position or in a big situation) and tend to forget the equal number of times that player has failed.
Some of the more celebrated "clutch" players in history, statistics-wise, were no Continue reading
There’s a trite expression that says (insert sport here) is a game of inches. Twice last night in extra innings we saw evidence that the axiom still applies to Major League Baseball.
Pinch-hitter Michael Morse missed a home run to the deepest part of the ballpark by mere inches in the bottom of the tenth with two outs and was forced to settle for a double. He was stranded there when Jerry Continue reading
With Thursday night’s crushing 6-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals record is one game below .500 at 18-19. They’ve accomplished this despite being dead last in the league in hitting. So how are they doing it? Primarily with decent starting pitching, (mostly) excellent relief pitching from a few key relievers, and improving defense. The team is 14-9 when not committing an Continue reading
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Washington Nationals starting pitcher Tom Gorzelanny has a history of walking a lot of batters and throwing a lot of pitches. It’s really what has kept him from becoming a reliable starter in the Major Leagues, as he’s been sent to the bullpen at points by each of his previous employers.
But last night against the San Francisco Giants, Gorzelanny turned in a masterful 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
When you send out a lineup that features just one hitter above the .250 mark, there’s every chance you could get shut out. For the third time this season, that’s exactly what happened to the Washington Nationals.
Kyle Lohse dominated the Nats hitters and delivered a complete-game, two-hit shut out in a 5-0 win for his St. Louis Cardinals. The loss drops the Nats to 9-9 for the season.
The Continue reading
THE RESULT: There were a few moments in the Washington Nationals 8-4 loss to the New York Mets that were key to the outcome of the game. None, however, were bigger than a dropped routine fly ball by a 14-year veteran.
Holding a tenuous 4-3 lead in the sixth inning, Carlos Beltran blasted a Tom Gorzelanny pitch to deep left field in a bid for his third home run of the game. It fell just short Continue reading
The Washington Nationals couldn’t get much offense going last night, managing just six hits off six New York Mets pitchers, en route to a 5-2 loss in Grapefruit League play before 6,646 at Digital Domain Park in Port St. Lucie, FL.
But the big news — which could have been catastrophic — was that Danny Espinosa fouled a ball of fhis right foot and had to be helped by team trainers into the Continue reading
It was a long day for all involved.
The Washington Nationals played a pair of spring training games yesterday, defeating the New York Mets 6-5 at home and falling to the Houston Astros 6-5 in Kissimmee, FL in the nightcap.
And although the Houston game was listed as a "split squad" game, several players that appeared in the home game also played in the night game, and skipper Jim Riggleman was Continue reading
