Recap: Braves fall to Nationals 3-2, completing three-game sweep

The Braves threatened on several occasions, but were unable to put together a big inning against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals. For the third night in a row the Braves fell to the Washington Nationals, this time in a tightly contested ballgame that finished with a 3-2 score. Coming into this series Atlanta had won five straight and were seemingly on their way toward a more competitive brand of baseball. The hot-hitting Nationals changed all that. R.A. Dickey got the start for Atlanta in this one and pitched very well, going seven innings and allowing three runs despite just three...

Freddie Freeman, Braves look to avoid sweep against Nationals

Freddie Freeman looks to continue his hot streak against Stephen Strasburg. The Atlanta Braves look to avoid a sweep Thursday night when they wrap up a three-game set against the Washington Nationals.

Washington Nationals’ Ryan Zimmerman finding success brings his career full circle

Coming off perhaps the worst season in his career, the Washington Nationals’ Ryan Zimmerman is looking like his former Silver Slugger-winning self.

Bryce Harper went 4-4 with two homers and a double and an ESPN analyst — the only one at the network who picked the Nats to win it all — is calling Washington’s lineup the best in the NL, so there are plenty of storylines to pull from this...

The Nationals Are Stupid Meanyheads.

We’re probably not going to beat these teams consistently. Or… inconsistently. The Nationals, who must delenda, added onto their already stacked roster by taking a big chunk out of their farm, and they’re in supreme “win now” mode with Bryce Harper heading to New York soon. They should be beat us. Julio Teheran couldn’t find […]
