Zimmermann Injured as Nats Lose To Phils

Nats Try To End First Half on High Note in Philly

After a closely-fought series with the Baltimore Orioles, the Washington Nationals (49-41) head up I-95 to take on the Philadelphia Phillies (41-51).

Three-Homer Eleventh Helps O’s Sink Nats

For a team with one of baseball’s best bullpens, you would not expect the Washington Nationals to be 2-8 in extra-inning games. Well, you might if you saw how they pitched tonight.

Covering The Nationals’ Biggest All-Star Snubs

I’ve gone on some fairly extensive rants about the MLB All-Star Game in the past. From allowing fan voting in a game that decides who gets home-field advantage during the World Series to managers selecting their own players rather than those who are most deserving, the game is a spectacle. That said, I’m still going […]
