How the Washington Nationals perpetuated the postseason narrative...

The baseball world believes the Nationals cannot win a playoff series. Game 5 proved them right and how are we supposed to process that? I saw a myriad of reactions immediately after the Game 5 loss. The man to my right slumped into his seat and repeatedly muttered, “one run.” The man to his right slammed the chair in front of him and shouted some expletives. The child to my left, whose favourite player is Gio Gonzalez, was red-faced and tears dripped off his chin onto his mother’s red t-shirt. They travelled down from Pittsburgh for this game. Yet, through all of this, there was an...

Washington Nationals’ lefty Gio Gonzalez will start against the Chicago Cubs in Game 5 of the NLDS tonight in the nation’s capital.

Dusty Baker wasn’t ready to name his Game 5 starter in the immediate aftermath of last night’s season-saving 5-0 win in Chicago. Cubs’ skipper Joe Maddon, on the other hand, had his plan pretty much set from what he told reporters after the defending World Series champs failed to end the NLDS in Wrigley...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the start of Game 5 with the Cubs in D.C. Alright, so here we are again. Today. And heading into the game, all that anyone will want to talk about is pitching — who starts, who relieves who, etc., etc. But I’m here to remind you that this series has continued to belong to the team able to score just enough. So, yet again: If the Nats don’t hit, they don’t win. Everything that could’ve sunk them on that front yesterday could very well sink them tonight. Hitting is what matters for this team tonight, end of story (although some...

Tanner Roark, Gio Gonzalez... Max Scherzer are options for Game 5?

CHICAGO -- Tanner Roark was set to pitch Wednesday. As someone who grew up a Chicago Cubs fans, Roark knew what pitching in Wrigley Field during the playoffs meant.

You've still got to face a good lineup.” - Gio Gonzalez on start vs Cubs in D.C.
