Washington Nationals take eighth of last nine on road trip with 11-4 win over the Colorado Rockies...

“We have depth,” Dusty Baker said. “We have power. Most of them are swinging pretty good right now.” Daniel Murphy singled off Colorado Rockies’ starter Tyler Chatwood to start the top of the second and one and two-out walks to Jayson Werth and Tanner Roark, respectively, loaded the bases in front of Adam Eaton, who sent a ground ball through the right side to drive in two runs for an early 2-0 lead. “Most of them are swinging pretty good right now. They get greedy, when they smell kind of blood in the water, they jump on it.” - Dusty Baker on the Nationals’ lineup Trea...

Dusty Baker on Washington Nationals’ 15-12 win in Colorado: “That’s Coors Field at its finest right there.”

Dusty Baker on Washington Nationals’ 15-12 win in Colorado: “That’s Coors Field at its finest right there.”

It’s something. But it’s not baseball, really. A night in Coors Field at its finest. Twenty-seven runs, twenty-nine hits, eight doubles, five home runs and two triples, a Trea Turner cycle, (the first of his career), a five-RBI game for Daniel Murphy (which went largely unnoticed), a 1 hour, 6 minute rain delay; 3 hour, 26 minute game, and a run scored by one team or the other in every single one of the nine innings [ed. note - “And thankfully, no extras.”] that was played in rainy 40° weather in what ended up being a 15-12 Washington Nationals’ win over the Colorado Rockies...

Zack Wheeler had his best start of 2017 last night

Zack Wheeler had his best start of 2017 last night

Despite the grand slam, Wheeler looked sharp(er) To call Zack Wheeler’s start last night the best of the season, despite taking a loss and giving up a grand slam to—you guessed it—Daniel Murphy, may seem like a back-handed compliment. But even with that first inning mistake on the box score, Wheeler pitched pretty well last night, and it could be a good sign of things to come for the right-hander. Wheeler threw 101 pitches over seven innings, and he walked two walking and struck out six. Neither of his walks came back to hurt him, and one was quickly erased on a double play. All of...

Game 18 WPA: Cleaning up. Washington Nationals beat New York Mets 6-3 to sweep series on Murphy grand slam, 8-inning Scherzer outing

Max pitched well, gopher balls aside, and Murphy returned to his hitting ways. Image courtesy Fangraphs. (What do these graphs and percentages mean?) Trouble with the long ball, but not too much trouble: Max Scherzer (+23.1%) gives up 3 runs over 8 innings pitched with 9 strikeouts and a single walk. It got late early: Daniel Murphy (+19.1%) drives in the winning runs with one out in the first, swatting a grand slam to right center (+23.5%). This is some classy veteran junk-timing: Ryan Zimmerman (+15.7%) cranks a two-run bomb off the facing of the second deck in right...

Daniel Murphy and Ryan Zimmerman combined for six RBIs with a pair of home runs and Max Scherzer went eight innings as the Washington Nationals swept the New York Mets with a 6-3 victory. Home runs set the tone early in this one, and they would remain the theme all evening Sunday as the Washington Nationals beat the New York Mets 6-3 to sweep the first series of the season between the two NL East heavyweights. Daniel Murphy’s first at-bat came in the top of the first inning with the bases loaded and he took full advantage, hitting a grand slam to continue his dominance over his former...
