  • Anthony Rendon explained the approach he carried to the plate against Felix Hernandez on Friday night with clarity and purpose. Hernandez loves to throw his wicked change-up, Rendon said, and so Rendon wanted to avoid swinging over it and missing. “See the ball up,” he told himself – anything headed to the bottom of the […]... read more...

  • The Nationals will get to use the designated hitter over their next three games at Safeco Field. Manager Matt Williams had a pretty easy choice for the first DH. He wanted to rest Jayson Werth, who is playing on a sore right ankle, and he wanted to give Nate Schierholtz his first start with the […]... read more...

  • The Houston Astros have finally made the move many fans have been waiting for: NiTro is here.

  • The Nationals can sweep the Mariners today, but they’ll have to beat Japanese right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma, one of the most underrated pitchers in baseball. Iwakuma has a 2.84 ERA in 85 career games, including 71 starts, thanks to impeccable command. This season, he has walked less than one hitter per nine innings, issuing 13 walks […]... read more...

  • In Aaron Barrett, the Nationals summoned a September call-up who is not a typical September call-up. He did not come to the majors as a green rookie the Nationals want for emergencies, or to give him a taste of the majors. Barrett played a crucial role for the Nationals’ bullpen for much of the season, […]... read more...

  • It’s a 9:10 p.m. start on the East Coast. The Nationals will try to build off their thumping of Felix Hernandez against left-hander Roenis Elias. Stephen Strasburg will try to rebound from a rough outing, a game the Nationals rallied to win, 14-6. The Nationals enter the night ahead of the Braves by six games […]... read more...

  • Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche exited the Nationals’ 6-4 victory Monday night in the seventh inning with stiffness in his lower back, an ailment that held him out of a game last week in Philadelphia and could sideline him during the Nationals’ final two games in Los Angeles. LaRoche said he considers himself “day-to-day,” and […]... read more...

  • Even with Wednesday’s uneven start, Doug Fister has been the Nationals’ best starter all season. He throws strikes and has good command. His stuff, especially his darting sinker, is undersold. He works quickly and fields his position well. But one of the overlooked reasons for his excellence is his ability to keep base runners in place. […]... read more...
