    The Nationals look to clinch a series win against the Miami Marlins in an early Wednesday afternoon game. Max Scherzer (1-3, 1.26) will take the mound in his sixth start of the season, while right-hander Tom Koehler (2-2, 4.67) will start for Miami. Scherzer has had some tough luck this year with run support, as the…

    The sight of Stephen Strasburg grimacing after throwing several pitches Tuesday night, then being visited on the mound by a trainer, then being pulled after three ragged but hardly awful innings could not have been comforting to the Nationals or to fans who understandably fear the worst anytime something appears to physically be wrong with…

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: After a 28-minute rain delay, Stephen Strasburg took the mound trying to duplicate his rotation mates’ recent string of dominance and pitch the Nationals to their fourth straight win. Something, though, clearly wasn’t right with Strasburg from the beginning, who labored through three innings, was visited on the mound by a…

  4. Still finding his groove, Werth gets a night off

    After missing all of spring training and the season’s first week, Jayson Werth figured both to be in danger of getting off to a slow start and needing more days off than usual while his body got into regular-season shape. The slow start has indeed happened, but Werth has played more than most would have…

    The Nationals haven’t won four games in a row since last September, but they’ll have a chance to do that tonight when they face the Marlins in the second game of this series, trying to build off last night’s dramatic, come-from-behind victory. Stephen Strasburg gets the start, still seeking a level of consistency that so…

    ATLANTA BRAVES  The Braves have been scuffling of late, especially since last week’s meltdown against the Nationals. The Braves are 2-5 in their last seven games and have fallen to third place in the NL East at 12-14 (not that it matters this early in the season). And even though the season’s barely a month…

    In his relatively short MLB career, Tanner Roark has already gone from afterthought prospect to surprise bullpen contributor to a 15-win starter and now back to relieving, somehow finding success at each stop. The former 25th round pick who lost 17 games at Triple-A the year before he debuted has become a baseball renaissance man.…

  8. A blast and a bloop keep Nats rolling

    It took nearly a month, but perhaps the 2015 Nationals are beginning to forge an identity, one that bears some strong resemblance to the 2014 version of this club. Whether overcoming injuries to key regulars, a sloppy play here and there or a late deficit, these Nationals are beginning to show a characteristic key to…

  9. UPDATE: Rendon has oblique strain; updates on Janssen & Johnson

    Rendon learns from first MLB stint

    [Updated 10:49 p.m.] Anthony Rendon has been diagnosed with an oblique strain after meeting with Nationals orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih on Monday, an injury that will end his minor league rehab assignment on terms that are anything but ideal. The 24 year old came to Washington on Monday after sitting out of games with the Double-A Harrisburg…

    GAME IN A NUTSHELL: On the heels of an eventful, 10-game road trip that ended on a high note, the Nationals were right back at the park Monday night to open a 6-game homestand, with another surging division rival in town. What transpired was another taut, low-scoring affair that was decided late. As has been…
