Nationals get boost from struggling veterans in win against Brewers

The Washington Nationals had just taken a comfortable lead in the fourth inning of an eventual 6-1 win and Jayson Werth sought to add to the margin, attempting to score on Anthony Rendon’s double to deep left. Werth was thrown out at home, however, left lying face down in the dirt. He stood up, yanked off his wrist guard and blinked hard to dislodge the dirt from his face. Rendon watched from second base. Wilson Ramos, who scored earlier in the rally on Werth’s single, cheered the effort from the dugout. Read full article >>

DC Sports Bog: The Nationals’ Werth walk-off bobblehead is borderline obscene and completely terrifying

From the @Nationals — a sneak peak at the Jayson Werth WalkOff Bobblehead — that giveaway is Sunday, 8/30. #nats pic.twitter.com/wl0qcLJOKlWJLA’s Alex Parker has been blessing the D.C. sports market with gems this week, but Thursday he tweeted a couple of photographs of a new Nationals giveaway that features Jayson Werth. The pose is from the 2012 NLDS, when Werth hit a walk-off home run against the Cardinals on Oct. 12.
