Washington Nationals’ lineup for 2nd of 3 with San Francisco Giants in D.C.

Washington’s Nationals try to put last night’s unfortunate developments behind them in the first game of today’s doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants. In spite of the fact that they lost Bryce Harper to an ugly-looking injury in the bottom of the first inning last night, the Washington Nationals stayed focused and collected a couple of early runs to take a 2-1 lead after one in the series opener with the visiting San Francisco Giants. Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy drove in runs in the first, and the Nationals padded their lead with an RBI double by Adam Lind in the sixth...

Washington Nationals: Injury updates on Howie Kendrick, Daniel Murphy, Dusty Baker

Howie Kendrick (back), Daniel Murphy (hip), and Dusty Baker (knee), are all dealing with injury issues, though Kendrick and Murphy are expected to be fine for tonight’s game... Howie Kendrick left the series opener with the Miami Marlins in Washington, D.C. with a back issue. “He said it flares up on him from time to time so we’ll see tomorrow,” Dusty Baker told reporters after the win over the Fish on Monday. “I was probably going to play [Adam Lind] out there against a right-hander [Vance Worley] anyway, and so I’m hoping that he’s okay later in the game. I told him to go...

Nationals 4, Cubs 2: Murphy’s bleachers

Someone please tell Daniel Murphy that the 2015 NLCS is over. The series between the Cubs and Nationals has been touted as a possible October postseason matchup. The weather cooperated, as the day was cloudy, windy and cool, with temperatures that didn’t get out of the 60s. (Not very nice for early August, though.) And Daniel Murphy, who eviscerated Cubs pitching during the 2015 National League Championship Series while he was with the Mets, smacked two home runs off Kyle Hendricks to lead the Nats to a 4-2 win over the Cubs in the series opener. The two home run balls were really the...
