Washington and San Francisco play the second game of their three-game set in AT&T Park at 10:15 PM EDT tonight.

Braves’ right fielder Nick Markakis is in the final season of a 4-year contract signed before the 2014 season.

Game Thread 4/24: Diamondbacks at Phillies

The Phillies may be fresh off a four-game sweep, but this series is being billed as their first real test. It’s no secret that the Phillies have faced some of the lousier teams the National (and American) League has to offer to start the season. Beating them has been enjoyable and necessary to reach the extremely promising 14-7 record with which the Phillies now find themselves. However, the Diamondbacks are storming into town, coming off a comparably hot start to the 2018 season, currently sitting atop the NL West by four games. A pair of dominating pitching staffs and effective...

The Nationals’ bullpen needs help, and they can get it cheap

The Nationals’ bullpen needs help, and they can get it cheap

It’s only April, but some middle-relief arms could provide the Washington Nationals with a much-needed boost. This is not how things were supposed to happen. It’s bad enough that the Washington Nationals are 10-13 — losers of four of their last five and eight of their last 12. A.J. Cole had such a rough start he had to be designated for assignment and was subsequently traded, both Adam Eaton and Anthony Rendon are on the disabled list and the bullpen owns the worst ERA in the National League at a startling 5.66. Factor in impressive starts from three of four division rivals and you...
