CHICAGO — Among the statistics most representative of Max Scherzer’s season is this: He is hitting .200 this season; opponents are hitting .199 against him. Pitchers are not supposed to outhit hitters. Pitchers do not often hold hitters down quite so determinedly, either.Read full article >>

DC Sports Bog: Throwback Thursday: Senators play first night game in D.C. baseball history

The Nationals played under the lights at Wrigley Field on Wednesday night, and that’s still a relatively new thing in Chicago. The Cubs didn’t play night games until 1988, not quite 30 years ago. In the District, they’ve been doing that for more than 70.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Casey Janssen “shows what type of marbles he has”

CHICAGO — Right-handed reliever Casey Janssen said he took it hard when the Nationals bullpen struggled earlier this season, forced to watch on television as young pitchers took their lumps and the Nationals took losses. He should have been in there, he said, and simply put he was right: the Nationals signed Janssen to pitch setup innings once pitched by Tyler Clippard, now-closer Drew Storen, stalwarts no longer available to serve. In Wednesday’s 2-0 win, he got that chance, and showed why he was so excited to pitch in those innings — and why the Nationals signed him to pitch them in...

Nats Journal: Anthony Rendon plays five innings, Doug Fister begins throwing

CHICAGO — While Anthony Rendon certainly does not want to be spending late May in Viera, extended spring training provides some helpful conveniences. Wednesday, Rendon was scheduled for five innings of simulated game action, the next step toward his return from a left oblique strain. He played the five frames, and got a couple of at-bats. Because of the flexibility available there, he was able to sneak in extra defense after he got his scheduled number of at-bats. He played every inning after his second at-bat to get extra reps, all of which came at second base.Read full article >>

Nats Journal: Jayson Werth to visit ‘his guy’ to have wrist evaluated

CHICAGO — Throughout Jayson Werth’s career, his left wrist has been a frustrating magnet for trouble, a small joint battered by pitches as if it attracted them. He was hit there first in 2005 and it tore a small ligament in his wrist. After months of pain, Dr. Richard Berger at the Mayo Clinic diagnosed the trouble and performed surgery to fix it. Berger treated Werth when he broke his wrist in 2012. So two weeks after that wrist was hit with a pitch in San Diego, Werth will go visit Berger — “his guy,” as Nationals Manager Matt Williams called him — to be further evaluated on...
