Yankeemetrics: May 19-20 (Nationals)

The end of perfection We knew it had to happen some time, right? Andrew Miller finally succumbed to the regression gods and gave up his first runs of the season – and unfortunately it came at a very ill-timed moment for the Yankees. Tied 6-6 in the bottom of the 10th inning, Ryan Zimmerman smoked [...] Yankeemetrics: May 19-20 (Nationals) is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Yankeemetrics: May 19-20 (Nationals) appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

DC Sports Bog: Yankees broadcasters discuss Nats fans leaving during extra innings

Full disclosure: I went to Nats Park Tuesday night as a paying customer, and I left in the top of the 10th inning, and then my phone died, and so I got play-by-play of the Ryan Zimmerman walk-off homer from a Yankees fan while sitting in a stationary Metro car.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Key moments in the Nationals’ wild walkoff win over the Yankees

For a May 19 game, Tuesday was as exciting as they come. Nationals Park was filled with 37,355 people to see the first-place Yankees take on the hometown team, and the crowd was loud. The back-and-forth game featured a comeback by the Nationals, base runners in key spots of the game, flame-throwing relievers and a tough at-bats. So much happened before Ryan Zimmerman walked off the Nationals with a two-run home run to the opposite field off dominant reliever Andrew Miller that it may all be forgotten.Read full article >>

Before Ryan Zimmerman’s walk off vs. Andrew Miller, the two shared a long history

They first faced each other so long ago, they don’t remember the specifics. We know this: neither was a millionaire nor knew he would be, and there was no way to predict that 11 years later, they would square off again, right here: Tuesday night at Nationals Park, bottom of the 10th inning, Andrew Miller on the mound as the ungodly good reliever for the New York Yankees, Ryan Zimmerman at the plate as the only Washington National who’s survived a decade.Read full article >>

Nationals 10, Padres 5: DC outbombs San Diego

Ian Kennedy had four really good innings today. And by "really good," I mean he went the first four innings of the afternoon without allowing a single hit. In those frames, he gave up a lone walk while striking out six. Even his fifth inning was looking pretty good. He gave up a leadoff triple to Bryce Harper followed by a Ryan Zimmerman single to put runners on the corners with nobody out, but he bounced back with a pair of harmless pop ups. But between the second out and the third out, Danny Espinosa hit a three-run homer. That fifth was pretty rough, but on its own wouldn't have been so...

Nats Journal: Tonight’s Nationals-Padres lineups

SAN DIEGO — The Nationals begin a four-game series here Thursday, although the weather doesn’t look promising Thursday or Friday.

Their collective .737 OPS is ninth in the majors. They’ve done without Anthony Rendon, plus missed time by Denard Span and Jayson Werth, and some struggles from Werth, Ian Desmond and Ryan Zimmerman.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Ryan Zimmerman stays steady through slump, and is starting to come out of it

Describing a baseball player as “even-keeled” often equates to commenting on his inherent makeup. Some players are even-keeled; some are not. Those who are not must learn to manage emotions, doomed as they are — unlike those even-keeled guys — to have them.Read full article >>

After solid series, Zimmerman hoping to get back on track

When the Nationals were scuffling at the plate for the majority of April, the club remained confident that most of its veterans would soon begin performing up to the level of their track records. And if this past weekend is any indication, the hope is that might be the case with Ryan Zimmerman. During the…
