Werth, Nats Power Themselves To Win Over Mets

After a 9-0 shutout and one-hitter last night, the Nats were certainly looking to pile on the Mets today. The pitching wasn’t quite as sharp, but the offense kept slugging and had another great day. The Nats (75-69) appear to have been hitting the weight room recently, sending seven of their 11 base hits for […]

Nats Talk On The Go: Episode 64

As the season winds down, we talk about the improving offense and great pitching. We also have an extended Q & A session from some of our favorite Twitter followers. And following Jonah Keri’s interview of former Nationals manager Manny Acta this week, we discuss just how awesome Manny is.


Philles Out-Slop Nats In Season’s Messiest Game

If you missed tonight’s game, you might count yourself fortunate. The Nats and Phillies took nearly four hours to commit four errors and issue 13 walks. But when the dust settled, the Nats (70-68) were on top. In one of the ugliest games of the season for two teams having ugly years, the Nationals topped […]

Desmond Powers Nats To Damp Victory Over Marlins

It was muggy, muddy, and for the second night in a row, much closer of a game than it probably could have been. But once again, despite the circumstances, the Washington Nationals (67-65) came away with a win over the Miami Marlins (49-82). Manager Davey Johnson described the 4-3 victory as, “a nice ballgame, since […]

Nats Talk On The Go: Episode 62

The Nats were able to go on a nice winning streak on their road trip against the Cubs and Royals. We break down the good and not-so-good from those games. Also, Mike Rizzo has made a few interesting moves since last week, including the Kurt Suzuki trade and acquiring David DeJesus for four days. We […]

Bullpen Shines In Nats’ Victory Over Marlins

They could have blown the Fish out of the water. The Washington Nationals (66-65) put runners on base in every inning but one against the Miami Marlins (49-81), and collected nine hits off the National League’s worst team. The Nationals settled for a “W” by the score of 2-1 on Tuesday night, and despite the […]

Nats Kick Off Home Stand Against Last-Place Marlins

  The Washington Nationals (65-65) are coming home. After a 10-game road trip that powered them to an even record for the first time in over a month, the Nats will kick off a six-game home stand against the Miami Marlins (49-80), an opponent that provides them the opportunity to put some meat on that […]


Offense, Zimmermann Shine In 7-2 Shellacking Of Royals

Someone needs to give the Washington Nationals’  (65-64) equipment manager a promotion, because it looks like he packed their bats for this road trip. The Nats kept slugging today, winning their fifth in a row and breaking .500 for the first time since July 14th, in a 7-2 win over the Kansas City Royals (64-64). […]

Harper, Roark Star In Nats’ Comeback Win Over Royals

Gio Gonzalez had little support despite being excellent against the Braves last week. On Friday, he had one of his worst starts of the season, but the Washington Nationals (64-64) gave him all the run support he could have needed in their 11-10 win over the Kansas City Royals (64-63). Gonzalez allowed seven runs over […]

Nats Bring Momentum To First-Time Visit To Royals Home Park

Over the next three weeks, the Kansas City Royals (64-62) are the only team with a winning record the Washington Nationals (63-64) will face. With a series win this weekend, the Nationals could take that distinction away from them, while also earning themselves a winning record for the first time since July 14. Momentum is […]

Nats Talk On The Go: Episode 61

Yesterday, David DeJesus was traded to the Nationals for a player to be named later, and Roger Bernadina was released. We talk about why those moves are important. Plus, we discuss who stays up after Ross Ohlendorf makes his return: Chad Tracy or Tyler Moore. We also go over the Bryce Harper's plunkings, Dan Haren's […]

Nats Go North To Face NL Central’s Last-Place Cubs

After yet another disappointing – though hard-fought – series loss to their division-rival Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals (60-63) will head north for a contest against a less formidable foe: the Chicago Cubs (53-70). With the second-worst record in the National League, the Cubs are much farther out of the postseason equation than even the […]

Nats Can’t Capitalize, Drop Series To Atlanta

  The Atlanta Braves (76-48) have been Gio Gonzalez’s bugaboo this season, pounding him to the tune of a 5.87 ERA in 23.0 IP. He fared much better today, but with how the Nats were hitting, it would have taken perfection to get the Washington Nationals (60-63) a win. Gonzalez allowed two runs over seven […]

Nats Look For Revenge In Atlanta

  Though the Washington Nationals (59-61) suffered a demoralizing home sweep by the Atlanta Braves (74-47) last week, they responded by streaking through their schedule, and only just ended their five-game win streak with a tough ninth-inning loss to the San Francisco Giants. The Nationals now find themselves preparing to take on the Braves again, […]
