Yunel Escobar’s home run powers Nationals past Cardinals

For eight innings Tuesday, the Washington Nationals invited the St. Louis Cardinals to beat them. They left pitches over the plate and walked batters. Starter Gio Gonzalez allowed 12 Cardinals to reach base but somehow fired six scoreless innings. The first two relievers after him also danced around trouble. Finally, the 16th Cardinals base runner broke the patched-up dam, a blown save by Drew Storen with two outs to go. Read full article >>

Nats 2, Cardinals 1 (10): Escobar walk-off bails out Storen

GAME IN A NUTSHELL: The Nationals have experienced precious little success against the Cardinals, dating all the way back to their heartbreaking loss in the 2012 NLDS.

Nationals’ Drew Storen overcomes struggles, relishes closer opportunity

JUPITER, Fla. — The winding journey that Drew Storen has undergone over the past three years has prepared him for this: He will begin a season as the unquestioned Washington Nationals’ closer for the first time since 2011.

Nats Journal: Drew Storen leaves games with a trainer

JUPITER, Fla. — Drew Storen left Monday’s Nationals-Cardinals game in the sixth inning with an undisclosed injury. Storen took the mound to start the inning, faced four batters and notched two outs. But after he threw ball four to walk Kolten Wond, he quickly motioned to the dugout. Manager Matt Williams and a trainer raced to the mound, and Storen left the game. Matt Grace, up from minor league camp, finished the inning. More to come after the game. Storen recently returned to spring game action after undergoing surgery on his left, non-throwing hand to remove a hamate bone. The...

VIERA, Fla. — Two more observations from Friday’s 1-1 tie against the Cardinals, unrelated to each other… — Drew Storen made his return to the mound, exactly two weeks removed from surgery to remove the broken hamate bone from his left hand.
