Washington Nationals’ lineup for finale with the San Diego Padres in Petco Park...

Washington’s offense came up short in what ended up a 3-1 loss in San Diego last night. Will the Nationals bounce back this afternoon? Back-to-back, two-out walks to Anthony Rendon and Ryan Zimmerman set red-hot Howie Kendrick up with an RBI opportunity early last night in Petco Park. Kendrick who’s come up big for Washington on a regular basis since he was acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies last month, sent a fly to right for the final out of a 36-pitch first inning by San Diego Padres’ lefty Travis Wood. Wood retired eight straight after the first-inning walks, and 12 of 14...

Nationals 2, Padres 1: Zimmerman smashes Kirby’s Dreamland

Nationals 2, Padres 1: Zimmerman smashes Kirby’s Dreamland

Kirby Yates has had some pretty solid adventures with the Padres, but tonight he was bested by Ryan Zimmerman, who hit a solo shot in the eighth inning to suck the air out of Petco Park and put the Nationals on top. Jhoulys Chacin made it through five innings with just one run despite an incredibly shaky third inning, but the star of the game was clearly former Friar Edwin Jackson, who kept the Pads in check for seven innings. The Nats got on the board in the third when Howie Kendrick led off with a double that caromed off the left field wall. That might not have amounted to anything at...

Washington Nationals 2-1 over San Diego Padres on Ryan Zimmerman’s 8th inning opposite field blast...

Edwin Jackson put together another impressive start and the Nationals took the series opener with the Padres in Petco Park when Ryan Zimmerman hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth... Edwin Jackson held the San Diego Padres to one run on eight hits over an efficient seven innings in Petco Park, throwing just 83 pitches. It was tied up at 1-1 after the Washington Nationals’ right-hander worked around a one-out walk (his first and only free pass) in the home-half of the seventh inning. Ryan Zimmerman came through with a big blast in the Nationals’ half of the eighth, taking reliever...

Ryan Zimmerman's homer, missed opportunities sink Padres in series opener

Jhoulys Chacin brought the majors’ second-lowest home ERA into his start Thursday against the Washington Nationals. On the surface, what ensued did little to affect his reputation as a force in downtown San Diego. But the right-hander was not his typical, sturdy self at Petco Park. The miracle...

Ryan Zimmerman's comeback story is an enjoyable one

Ryan Zimmerman is having a comeback season, and we're all enjoying it. Fans may lust after Bryce Harper, but the guy everyone fell in love shortly after baseball returned to Washington in 2005 was Zimmerman – a home-grown All-Star who represented the franchise with class on and off the field. ...

Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Angels split two-game set in D.C.: 3-2 LA today...

Tanner Roark was solid and Ryan Zimmerman hit another home run, but two blasts by the Angels were the difference in a 3-2 win in Nationals Park. Tanner Roark was sharp, throwing a biting curve and locating his fastball, including the break-back, two-seamer inside to lefties, but he made two mistakes, on a 1-0 fastball to Angels’ third baseman Luis Valbuena in the fourth, and a 2-0 fastball to Kole Calhoun in the fifth, and both of them left the yard as Los Angeles battled back from a 2-0 deficit and took the second of two in Washington, D.C., 3-2 over the Nationals. Roark ended up going...
