Washington Nationals’ lineup for series opener with New York Mets: Dusty Baker’s youngsters start again...

After a late night flight from Atlanta, the Washington Nationals are sending a youngster-filled lineup out against the New York Mets... Jayson Werth started the series finale win Atlanta with good career numbers against Braves’ knuckler R.A. Dickey (13 for 29, .448/.543/.759, 3 2B, 2 HRs, 6 BB, 4 Ks), but he had a rough night at the plate in SunTrust Park, going 0 for 3 with two Ks against the knuckleballer and 0 for 4 with three Ks overall. Dusty Baker told reporters, after what ended up a 3-2 loss, that he didn’t really read too much into the veteran outfielder’s bad night, which...

Washington Nationals almost got burned by replay review

Washington Nationals almost got burned by replay review

The Nationals won Sunday’s game against the Dodgers, but only after a replay review gone wrong. The Nationals couldn’t seem to get on third base during the early innings of Sunday’s ballgame. It was 1-0 Dodgers in the sixth inning when the Nationals put two runners on base. Jayson Werth stepped up to the plate and laced an 0-2 pitch down the line into left field. It was close and called foul by the third base umpire, Gary Cederstrom. If that ball is fair, and it was fair, Trea Turner is the tail runner and scores a step-and-a-half after lead runner Stephen Strasburg crosses the...

Game #147 Dusty Baker goes with his #1 lineup tonight against the Dodgers with EJax on the mound

Without Bryce Harper available, the Nationals seem to be playing short-handed even with an outfield of Jayson Werth, Michael Taylor and Howie Kendrick. Edwin Jackson is the starting pitcher tonight, and he has unfortunately fallen back to earth. Jackson’s ERA … The post Game #147 Dusty Baker goes with his #1 lineup tonight against the Dodgers with EJax on the mound appeared first on TalkNats.com.

Washington Nationals avoid sweep with 5-2 win over Atlanta Braves: Tanner Roark solid again...

Tanner Roark put together another solid outing, and Jayson Werth, Adam Lind, and Victor Robles all put together multi-hit games in a 5-2 Nationals’ win over the Braves. Tanner Roark put together another solid outing, continuing his second-half resurgence, but a two-run home run in his final inning of work in the sixth made it a one-run game, 3-2, in the series finale with the Atlanta Braves in the nation’s capital. Four batters into the bottom of the sixth, however, the Nationals had a three-run lead on the Braves, 5-2, after Adam Lind and Victor Robles singled and Adrian Sanchez sent a...

Catch up on the last 24 hours in Nationals news before the second of three with the Braves in D.C. Alright, to be fair, if you Tomahawk Chop at Nationals Park, the Braves are probably gonna win there in the next 72 hours. Just how it works, I’m pretty sure. Here’s the down-low from D.C. Which Nationals pitcher (or person named Clayton Kershaw) should be the Cy Young winner?Gio, Max, Strasburg, and Kershaw all have great cases for Cy Young Awards, but it seems like (by most measurements) that the main dogfight is between Scherzer and Kershaw. Jayson Werth misses fifth straight game due...

Washington Nationals clinch 2017 NL East title, head back to postseason: “Get your popcorn ready.”

Washington Nationals clinch the NL East, look forward to October and their fourth trip to the postseason in six years... Jayson Werth had what was, perhaps, the best line of the Washington Nationals’ post-clinch celebration on Sunday when he talked to MASN’s Dan Kolko about the fact that he has now been a part of four division winners over the course of the 7-year/$126M deal he signed in the winter of 2011. “I don’t know, I kind of look like a genius. I picked this team over a lot of other teams because I believed in the vision Mike Rizzo and the Lerners set out...” - Jayson...

Dusty Baker plans on starting a “Futures” team this afternoon in the Nationals’ finale with the Phillies... Washington could clinch the NL East this afternoon with a win over the Philadelphia Phillies and a Miami Marlins’ loss, after the Nationals’ magic number dropped to two with the Atlanta Braves’ win over the Fish in SunTrust Stadium. If the Nats can win in the finale of their four-game set with the Phils, and the Braves can beat the Marlins, that’s it. Four division titles in six seasons. Two straight for the first time... and if not, we’ll all have to wait ‘til...
